San Francisco Eichler Homes

Designed in the 1950s-1960s by renown mid-century architects such as Claude Oakland, Anshen + Allen, and Jones + Emmons,  Eichler homes are often top-of-mind for Bay Area home buyers that admire the design aesthetic of mid-century modern homes.

  • Floor-to-ceiling "walls of glass"
  • High ceilings with exposed beams

While the majority of Eichler-built homes are located in the surrounding suburbs, Joseph Eichler had four distinct developments in the city of San Francisco.
