For modern architecture lovers...a home on the Stanford campus. 

A rare Quincy Jones and Frederic Emmons original 1969 mid-century classic post and beam Eichler embodies true California living. 

The high raked ceilings and glass walls in the open plan living and dining room let in abundant light and offer sun-filled views into the flagstone paved gardens. The stylish sliding “barn” door in the dining room provides separation between the adult “front” of the house and the “back” house:  with updated Euro-style galley kitchen and four children’s bedrooms. (one converted to a study). This is a floorplan ideally suited for a family. Two pairs of smaller bedrooms -each pair with its own jack-and-jill bathroom—rim the central tv/playroom whose glass wall opens to the back garden. 

The remodeled master suite with 8’ window wall leads to a private patio. And its adjoining Japanese-inspired bath with soaking tub and Porcelanosa wood-grained tiled shower inspires calm. The 8’ tall custom closets include high cupboards accessed by German-design library ladder and rail system. 

The home has clean and quiet radiant heat, a passive solar system that provides its electricity needs, and high speed google fiber internet.

The Indoor/outdoor feeling flows throughout the house.  In every room, sliding window walls offer views to the fragrant green outside. Lizards, hummingbirds, finches, wrens, bushtits, juncos, and sparrows frequent the well-established native garden planted with them in mind.  With its curving flagstone paths, the garden surrounds the house, softening the classic Eichler geometry. 

This campus home is a short distance from the award-winning Nixon Elementary School, the Stanford Campus Recreation Association, and California Avenue shops, restaurants, weekly Farmers’ Market and Caltrain.  Available to Eligible Stanford Faculty only.
