Some of the most popular modern-style homes in the Bay Area are those built by mid-century builder Joseph Eichler. Originally intended as affordable, quality housing for middle class families, Eichler homes have stood the test of time and, in recent years, have enjoyed a resurgence in popularity with homeowners who appreciate the sleek, minimal aesthetic of modern design.
Characterized by low-pitched roofs, simple lines, and open floor plans, Eichlers blend the boundaries between outdoors and in with walls of glass and centrally located atriums, making them perfect for the comfortable climate found in San Francisco’s East Bay Area.

Eichler Neighborhoods in the East Bay
If you are in the market for an Eichler, the East Bay is a great place to start your search. Sitting in the shadow of the iconic Mt. Diablo, the city of Walnut Creek has the largest community of Eichler homes in the East Bay, Rancho San Miguel. Built in the late 1950s, Rancho San Miguel is the definitive mid-century Eichler neighborhood with convenient shopping, an active homeowners association, and a strong sense of community.
Just north of Walnut Creek, is Concord, CA – home to two Eichler neighborhoods. Rancho del Diablo is a community of A. Quincy Jones and Claude Oakland designed Eichler homes, while a second Eichler tract can be found in the Barrington Drive area. The Eichler homes in Concord are close to all the amenities of a large city and are well positioned for commuters who need to travel to other Bay Area locations for work or play.
On the Bay side of the Oakland/Berkeley Hills are two more Eichler neighborhoods. In Castro Valley, somewhat off the beaten path, Greenridge is a neighborhood of approximately 200 Castro Valley Eichler homes tucked up in the hills northeast of the city center. In Oakland, Sequoyah Hills is a community of close to fifty Eichlers settled into the Oakland Hills. Sometimes referred to as the “Lost Eichlers of the Oakland Hills”, these Eichler homes in the Oakland Hills are just a stone’s throw away from the Sequoyah Hills Golf and Country Club.
