Midfair and Fairpark are two early Eichler neighborhoods in Palo Alto’s Midtown neighborhood. Midfair is a small tract of Eichler homes located on Allen Court. Fairpark is a larger tract with homes located along Marshall Drive, Moreno Avenue, and Louis Road.
The Fairpark Eichlers were small homes built in 1954. Today many of them have been renovated and the neighborhood is no longer pure Eichler, although there are a number of original Eichler homes scattered in among the remodels. The Midfair Eichler homes might have suffered a similar fate had it not been for CC&Rs, originally written by Eichler Homes, that are used as a guideline for remodels and renovations. Although a few non-Eichler remodels have happened over the years, most of the homes in Midfair maintain the sleek, contemporary Eichler aesthetic.
