Diamond Heights Eichler Homes
Joseph Eicher's first foray into urban development was single-family homes in the Diamond Heights neighborhood of San Francisco.
Conveniently situated near the middle of San Francisco, Joseph Eichler's Diamond Heights tract is located in the hilly interior of the city, nestled between Twin Peaks to the North, Noe Valley & Castro to the East, and Glen Park to the South.
Built between 1962-1964 under the guidance of architect Claude Oakland, Eichler Homes constructed approximately 100 single family homes in Diamond Heights, ranging in size from 1,629 -2,020 square feet.
Departing slightly from his classic one-story, post-and-beam ranch home design, Eichler developed seven distinct floorplans in this neighborhood, most of which are either two-story or split-level homes. Common floorplans for this Eicher tract include 4 bedroom/2.5 bath, 3 bedroom/2.5 bath, 3 bedroom/2 bath and two bedroom/2 bath homes.
Common features of Diamond Heights Eichler homes include in-floor hydronic radiant heat (copper pipes), floor-to-ceiling glass (which varies by degree based on the specific floorplan), tongue & groove ceilings, Japanese Shoji style closet doors and either 1 or 2 car garage parking. Most homes also include a courtyard which is consistent with the indoor/outdoor living theme that exemplified Joseph Eichler.Eichlers of Diamond Heights
Many of these homes are still occupied by their original owners and neighborhood turnover is fairly low (3-5%, annually).
Pride of ownership and a commitment to preservation can be seen amongst many of the homes in this development however there are also a fair number of homes in need of restoration. Fortunately most homes have excellent 'bones' and can provide an excellent canvass for individuals passionate about mid-century modern design and Eichler preservation.
