Sales began for the 167 Eichler homes in Palo Alto’s Fairmeadow neighborhood in the spring of 1951, just a few months after Eichlers in nearby Charleston Meadow went on the market. Fairmeadow has a unique street layout of concentric roads that can be accessed from Alma Street, East Charleston Road, and East Meadow Drive. The Eichlers in Fairmeadow are found on South Court, Bryant Street, Ramona Circle, Roosevelt Circle, Lindero Drive, Starr King Circle, Wright Place, Carlson Court, Carlson Circle and Redwood Circle.
Created as a planned community, with a street layout designed by Anshen + Allen, Fairmont was named Subdivision of the Year by Architectural Forum. A. Quincy Jones of Jones & Emmons designed the Eichler homes in Fairmeadow. The Fairmeadow Eichlers, which featured 3-bedrooms and 2 baths, are slightly larger that the Charleston Meadow Eichlers. The facades of the homes in Fairmeadow are typical early Eichler with clean horizontal lines, gently sloping gabled roofs, and clerestory windows on the gable ends. A nice feature of Fairmeadow is that there are no utility poles and lines along the streets, which gives the neighborhood a clean, uncluttered look.
