Original Eichler Beauty

This stunning Eichler home only had one previous owner, so had been thoughtfully preserved and cared for for over several generations. It was very important to the current homeowner to preserve the authentic details of this Eichler Atrium Model home when approaching home design projects. Extra care was also taken to source period-appropriate home furnishings, materials, and artwork that would honor the home’s roots.
