Mid-Century Modern: First Time Homebuyers Edition

This is my favorite affordable home to come up in…probably years. I don’t just like this tract, I love it. And with the resurgence of Downtown Fullerton, it’s not just a great piece of design, but a great lifestyle as well.

Many people incorrectly call these homes the “Fullerton Eichlers.” They are not Eichlers. But there is an Eichler connection. Joseph Eichler espoused that well-designed modern homes were so important, that other builders should be making them, too. He worked with architecture firms Jones and Emmons (yes, the Jones is A. Quincy Jones) to develop some smaller, more affordable plans that could be built by other homebuilders. These homes, more accurately called the Fullerton Forever Homes, were built by Pardee.

It’s so wonderful to see one of these homes “done right.” You might not agree with all the finishes, but this is really a spectacular homage to the original design. I feel like this might be a good guess as to what would have been built today.

Don’t take my word for it…see it for yourself. We’re here to represent your best interests. Give us a call to schedule a showing.

Beautiful mid-century modern gem minutes to downtown Fullerton! If you like Eichlers and mid-century modern design, then you will love this “Fullerton Forever Home”. This beautifully restored home features the classic, clean, modern lines, carport and walls of glass which is quintessential Eichler. I love that the homeowner stayed true to the architectural design and you will too! You are greeted by the new solid core walnut front door and welcomed into the home with the clean lines of polished concrete floors which flow throughout the home. The amazing new kitchen features Euro-style cabinets, sleek Pental Quartz countertops and all new stainless-steel appliances. The main bathroom has a stylish new tile surround, vanity with stone counter top and light fixtures. The interior was recently painted and most of the exterior too! A new electrical panel was also installed. This is a must see home and will not last long!
