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.  

Common Design Characteristics of Eichler Homes

  • Open floorplans
  • Floor-to-ceiling "walls of glass"
  • High ceilings with exposed beams
  • Open-air center Atriums & Courtyards
  • Philippine mahogany walls (drywall common with later developments) 
  • In floor radiant heat 

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.

Eichler Developments in San Francisco

nullJoseph Eichler's initial housing developments in Northern California were concentrated in the North Bay, South Bay, East Bay, as well as the Peninsula.  In 1962, Eichler made his first foray into the city of San Francisco.  Eichler developments in the city of San Francsco include:

  • Diamond Heights Eichler Homes tract built in 1962-1964 (District 4)

  • Russian Hill Eichler Condominums built in 1963-1964 (District 8)
  • Visitacion Valley Eichler Townhomes + Apartments (District 10)

If you are searching for a single-family Eichler home in San Francisco, your search is limited to Diamond Heights where prices range from $875k-$1.25M.  

If an Eichler condominium is more your style, you can choose from either the Cleary Court + Laguna Eichler development in the Western Addition ($600k-$800k) or the high-end Eichler Summit development at 999 Green Street in Russian Hill ($1M-$2.7M).
