Between 1962-1966, Eichler Homes partnered with architects Claude Oakland and Jones & Emmons to build just over three-hundred single family homes in Upper Lucas Valley. This project represented the last Eichler tract built by Eichler Homes in San Rafael, California.
These Upper Lucas Valley (ULV) Eichlers can be found across a number of streets including Idylberry Road, Mount Shasta Drive, Mt. Whitney, Mt. Rainier, Mt. Tenaya, Mt. Foraker, Pikes Peak Drive, Mt Tallac, Mt Lassen Drive and Oak Mountain Court.
ULV Eichler floorplans include 5 bedroom/2 bath, 4 bedroom/2 bath and 3 bedroom/2 bath homes. On average, the square footage of these Lucas Valley Eichler properties are larger than most Eichler tracts, ranging in size from approximately 1,756 - 2,330 square feet.
This neighborhood has a very well organized homeowners association (the Lucas Valley Homeowners Association, or "LVHA") and has policies in place to maintain the integrity of the Eichler community. Additionally, the absence of above ground power lines and utilities in this development further reinforce its attractiveness to homebuyers.
Eichler homes in Upper Lucas Valley are highly desirable and typically sell in the $775k-$1.2M price range.
