About 19 Irving Avenue

Discover Eichler's Personal Masterpiece: A Mid-Century Haven in Atherton. Nestled among the mature oaks of Atherton's prestigious Lindenwood neighborhood, this 5 BR, 5.5 BA, 3700 sq ft home, the original residence of renowned builder Joseph Eichler stands as a testament to mid-century modern design and a personal embodiment of his architectural vision. Designed by the iconic architects Anshen & Allen in 1951, this home not only marked the beginning of Eichler's illustrious career but also served as his personal sanctuary until 1965. The Eichler residence is more than just a structure; it's a spatial narrative that unfolds through its V-shaped layout, parallelogram-themed rooms, and a swimming pool that mirrors this geometric precision. Clad in redwood and brick, its expansive glass walls invite the outside in, creating a seamless blend with the natural surroundings. Before introducing new features into his production houses, Eichler tested innovations including sliding doors, built-in furniture, and even the choice of materials, making the residence a "cinemascope" version of Eichler tract homes and a crucible for design experimentation. Excellent schools: Encinal, Hillview, and M-A. Minutes to downtown Menlo Park and Palo Alto's restaurants and shopping. A Bay Area icon!
