    PREVIEW SUNDAY DECEMBER 13, 2009 from 12-4 PM BY APPOINTMENT. 

    This is the Eichler renovation that jump started the Eichler craze having won Metropolitan Home's "Home of the Year Award" and then subsequently becoming a fold out in The Los Angeles Times Sunday design magazine. The house has been featured on TV, the SF MOMA house tour, The American Society of Architectural Historians West Coast Modern Tour the S.F. Chronicle, Palo Alto Weelky and Spazio Casa . 

    This renovation was designed by Greenmeadow architects ( www.greenmeadow.cc ) and features a modern birch plywood kitchen with stainless steel counters and appliances, wood, slate and fabric paneled interior walls, custom made stainless steel bathroom vanities, slate and oak flooring and a computer controlled two zone radiant heating system. The house is 3 bedroom / two bathroom with a large family room, two car garage and detached studio pod. The house has solar electric panels which run the electric meter backwards on sunny days. The house is beautifully landscaped and features orange, lemon, lime, grapefruit, apple, fig, pomegranate, avocado, allspice, peach and bay trees. Perennial herbs grace the organic garden planting beds. 

    To round out the offering this house is located in Greenmeadow ( listed on the National Register of Historic Places ) which Joseph Eichler thought to be his masterpiece of modern utopian design. Greenmeadow is a urban village walkable to restaurants, Pete's coffee, fine food shopping, Mitchell Park, Cubberly Community Center, Churches and a Cal Train stop. Greenmeadow has its own 3 acre park, pool, club house, community association, newsletter and preschool . Greenmeadow is 1.4 miles from Google Headquarters, 2 miles to HP headquarters, 3 miles from Stanford University and downtown Palo Alto and 7 miles from Apple headquarters. Greenmeadow is NOT located in a restricted Palo Alto flood plain zone. 

    Modern Living does not get better than this. This is the coolest Eichler you will ever have the chance to own. 650-856-8354
