The Eichler homes in Sunnyvale Manor Addition, aka Sunnyvale Manor II, were the first architect-designed homes that Joseph Eichler built. These original Eichler homes can be found a block east of Sunnyvale Manor I (which is the tract where Eichler made his first venture into home building, using purchased blueprints). The Sunnyvale Manor Addition Eichlers can be found on E. Duane Avenue and E. Arbor Avenue between Morse and Maple, as well as on both Morse Avenue and Maple Avenue.
Using plans designed by Anshen + Allen architects, the Eichlers in Sunnyvale Manor Addition were small 3-bedroom homes with just over 1000 square feet of living space – all built from the original AA-1 Eichler floor plan, identical with the exception of the roof pitch and site layout. What made these homes exceptional, however, were the features that were to become hallmarks of Eichler homes: the open floor plan that offered a spacious feeling to a modestly sized home and the orientation toward the backyard, blending the outside with the inside using walls of glass as separation between the two. Today, despite remodeling and renovations that have occurred over the years, most of the Eichler homes in Sunnyvale Manor Addition are still recognizable as Eichlers.
