 I know many Eichler enthusiasts LOVE classing mid-century modern (MCM) furnishings however trying to purchase authentic MCM pieces to complement their home can be a  very costly proposition.   Additionally, it's nearly impossible to find consistent discounts when purchasing new items from the likes of  notable designers such as Charles & Ray Eames, George Nelson, Herman Miller and many others.

If you are looking to make a large investment in new midcentury modern furnishings, I wanted to share a tip I have personally utilized and have also shared with clients and friends.   Specifically, I learned that you can receive a 15% DISCOUNT on purchases made at Design Within Reach (DWR) and Herman Miller IF you are a FoundersCard Member.   

What is FoundersCard?

terra linda south eichler home

Joseph Eichler was brilliant in situating his Marin Eichler communities, validating the old real estate axiom that the number one rule in real estate is Location, Location, Location.  Located in one of the most beautiful parts of California, Marin’s Eichler neighborhoods have top-rated school districts and easy access to commuting, recreation, entertainment, and shopping. Of the 1700+ homes Eichler built in Marin County, approximately 900 of them are in the Terra Linda community of San Rafael. Six hundred Eichler homes can be found in Terra Linda North and the remaining 220 are in the Terra Linda South tract.

The Terra Linda South Eichlers were designed by two of Joseph Eichler’s favored architectural teams, Jones & Emmons and Anshen + Allen in the

The dilemma posed by the popular HGTV show Love It or List It is one that many homeowners face as their changing needs make their current home less than ideal for their current situation.

Right now, the real estate market is good – and strong home sales (and price points) bring many homeowners to the question of what will work best for their lifestyle – selling their current home and buying a new one – or renovation of their current home.

If you love your neighborhood, but your needs have changed renovation can be a good solution, assuming that you love your neighborhood and your home lends itself to a remodel that will work for you and your lifestyle. Some things to bear in mind when considering a reno project are:

Last week we visited the exclusive Mill Valley / Strawberry Point Eichler community where the Eichlers are custom or semi-custom homes. Today we’re heading back to San Rafael and touring Terra Linda North.

Of the 1700 homes Joseph Eichler built in Marin County, most of them are in 4 San Rafael neighborhoods – Terra Linda South, Terra Linda North, Upper Lucas Valley, and Marinwood. With 600+ homes, Terra Linda North is the larger of the two Terra Linda tracts.

Most of the Eichlers in Terra Linda North are 3 and 4-bedroom homes designed by Eichler architects Jones & Emmons, Anshen + Allen, and Claude Oakland. Although Joseph Eichler built very few 2-story homes, thirteen 2-story Eichlers can be found in Terra Linda North. Twelve were built in 1962

Just want to let Eichler fans know that the Eichler real estate market is picking up! In addition to several new listings in the Bay Area, we’ve got a gorgeous remodeled, move-in ready, Eichler in Walnut Creek listed by our associate Ken Fox. Along with Ken’s new East Bay listing, we’ve got a couple more properties in Marin coming up, as well as two off-market Eichlers whose owners will consider selling should the right buyer come along. By right buyer, I mean a serious, preapproved buyer. One home is a 4/2 Eichler in the Lucas Valley with a firm price of $1. 5M; the other is a Terra Linda beauty coming in at $1.25M (firm). Give me a call at 415-EICHLER (415-342-4537) or get in touch via the Eichler For Sale Contact Page for more information.

We’ve recently taken a look at two Eichler neighborhoods (Upper Lucas Valley and Marinwood) in San Rafael, so I thought we’d head south and tour an exclusive Eichler enclave in Mill Valley. Just a handful of the 1700+ homes that Joseph Eichler constructed in Marin County were built in Mill Valley. Although Eichler had originally planned to build 99 homes in the Mill Valley neighborhood of Strawberry Point (aka Harbor Point), only 15 were actually constructed.

The Mill Valley / Strawberry Point Eichler homes are not typical Eichlers. Designed primarily by Claude Oakland and built in 1965, they are larger homes (between 2200 and 2900+ square feet) than the prototypical Eichler, and all have somewhat unique floor plans and custom or semi-custom
