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.

Many Eichler homeowners take the Mid-Century vibe of their neighborhood for granted, but as time takes its toll on homes – and it inevitably does – renovation, remodels, and complete teardown/rebuilds are affecting many Eichler communities. I guess the best example of that is in Palo Alto, where there has been a good deal of controversy recently, with Eichler residents squaring off with neighbors who want to build 2-story homes that will loom over the single-story, glass-walled Eichlers. Last week the Palo Alto City Council agreed to officially remove the fee for petitioning for neighborhood single-story-overlay zoning.  This should help make the process easier for Eichler homeowners seeking to ban 2-story homes from their neighborhoods. Even with the
