Fullerton Forever Home Done Right

We’ve always loved the Fullerton Forever homes (sometimes called the Fullerton “Eichlers”). And why wouldn’t we — they come with an A. Quincy Jones pedigree and while built by Pardee Homes, this tract is a result of Joseph Eichler’s famous proclamation to make affordable, well-designed, modern homes available to even more people. And this one was done right. The exterior has been enhanced while staying just on the right side of the line of “too much.” I like the ethos of the backyard: let the design be dictated by how you plan to use it. Here you have pool spaces, dining spaces, and lounging space — all with a good measure of privacy. Now for the elephant in the room — this home is for sale via an auction like process. It won’t sell for $295k. Our best guess on price is somewhere in the high $500s to low $600s.
