For the Modernist who is particularly fond of the clean, contemporary style of homes built by Joseph Eichler, Walnut Creek, which has the largest Eichler neighborhood in the East Bay, is a great place to start the search for the perfect Eichler home.
Walnut Creek's Eichler homes are in Rancho San Miguel, a mid-century neighborhood developed by Joseph Eichler and Jordan & Reed in the 1950s and ‘60s. A subdivision of more than 500 mid-century homes, 375 of which are Eichlers, Rancho San Miguel is a friendly, close-knit community with neighborhood activities scheduled throughout the year and an Eichler-built swim club which serves as a social hub. Most of the Eichler homes in Rancho San Miguel have retained their traditional Eichler exterior, although many have been modernized on the inside to include central air-conditioning and heat, keeping the mid-century character of the neighborhood alive while offering the comforts of modern living.
