Designed by legendary architect Claude Oakland, and built by Eichler homes in 1969, this extraordinary masterpiece is truly awe inspiring and a tribute to mid-century modern architecture and a tribute to California living.
Affectionately known as the “Super H”, this Super-Eichler boasts an extensive single level floor plan of 2,448 measured square feet featuring a dramatic double door entrance to the massive open air atrium that leads to the impressive loggia with soaring cathedral ceilings that’s the center of the home. There are 4 ample sized bedrooms, and 2 and a half wonderfully remodeled bathrooms with custom cabinetry and contemporary tile and fixtures, including a generous primary bedroom with walk-in closet, and private split bathroom with roman shower-tub, double sinks, and direct access to the north side yard.
The remodeled and updated kitchen with island centerpiece is absolutely gorgeous with honed granite countertops, premier appliances including a Thermador convection oven and six burner induction cooktop, as well as a Sub Zero refrigerator, wine fridge, and ice maker. There’s copious amounts of counter and storage space with soft closing cabinetry, a pantry, and an adjacent flex space that can be used as a den or informal dining.
Other features include a separate dining room with bar and courtyard access, wood burning fireplace in the living room, separate laundry room with utility sink, new solid core interior doors with increased height and updated hardware throughout, new contemporary closet doors by The Sliding Door Company, multiple skylights throughout, original Eichler globe lighting, new carpeting in 3 bedrooms, a huge attached 2 car finished garage with brushed aluminum and glass automatic door, an updated high efficiency boiler for the radiant heating, an insulated foam roof under warranty, and more!
All situated on a large and private level lot of 10,000 square feet as per tax records with meticulously landscaped front, side, and backyards with programmable irrigation, accent lighting, established foliage, and fully fenced side and backyard. There are multiple places and spaces for relaxing and entertaining including a stunning courtyard surrounded by the living room, dining room, and loggia, as well as a deck adjacent to the kitchen that’s perfect for outdoor dining, and epitomizes the Eichler spirit of bringing the outdoors in.
The Northgate Eichler neighborhood was the last and smallest East Bay development for Eichler homes and features some of the largest and most dynamic of all the homes ever designed for Eichler homes. It’s also only one of 2 Eichler neighborhoods in the East Bay with underground utilities.
The architect, Claude Oakland has been credited with being involved in the design of over 3,430 Eichler homes in 51 subdivisions, and worked for Eichler homes for over 25 years in one capacity or another. For example Claude Oakland worked as an architect for Anshen and Allen, the first Architectural firm to work for Eichler homes, and continued working with Eichler homes when he started his own firm in 1960 until they were last constructed in 1974.
Oakland is known for “cleaning up the lines” of some of the first designs that created the Eichler aesthetic, and evolved with the times to create the Super-Eichler’s of Northgate and beyond.
