The house is one of the thousands of mid-century modernist homes built by Joseph Eichler between 1949 and 1966 throughout north and south California. The architects’ work included re-configuring the master bedroom/bath, the kitchen, and the hall bath/laundry area, as well as updating interior finishes throughout to be more sophisticated. Many of the original elements are kept in place such as the concrete masonry fireplace and the luan wall panelling which was lightly sanded, cleaned, and re-stained.

The owners’ design aesthetic leans toward the Scandinavian — light and bright, with simple straight lines and pure geometric shapes.

Kitchen cabinetry, countertops, appliances, and light fixtures are all white, making the kitchen feel airier and light.

The owners chose to keep some of the original Eichler elements: the concrete masonry fireplace, the stained tongue-and-groove redwood ceiling decking and the luan wall panelling.

Sliding shoji panels at all bedroom windows and sliding glass doors installed by a previous owner were also kept in place, while grooves were cut into the new tile flooring for the panels to slide in, creating a more integrated look.
