Palo Alto Eichler Homes
Joseph Eichler built more homes in Palo Alto than in any other community in the Bay Area. Palo Alto’s 2700+ Eichler homes are scattered throughout the city, many in well-known tracts including Charleston Meadow, Greenmeadow, Fairmeadow, Green Gables, Channing Park, and Los Arboles. Other Palo Alto Eichlers are in smaller neighborhoods that include just a few homes or custom homes on individual lots.
The first Eichler homes in Palo Alto, designed by Anshen+Allen and Jones & Emmons, were built in the early 1950s. Eichler continued building homes in Palo Alto throughout the 1950s, the ‘60s, and into the 1970s. Palo Alto is also home to several original 2-story Eichler homes designed by Claude Oakland. These 2-story Eichlers are located in the Los Arboles Addition tract on Torreya Court and Loma Verde Avenue, as well as two individual 2-story Eichlers that sit side-by-side at the corner of Melville Avenue and Cowper Street.
As a note of interest: The very last home built by Joseph Eichler is a semi-custom home on Guinda Street. It is Claude Oakland’s design plan PA-3 and believed to be the only Eichler built with this floor plan.
