A Bay Area Renovation Reveals a (Practically) Brand New Eichler

Another renovated Eichler recently surfaced in the Bay Area. Located in San Raphael, California, 710 Penny Royal Lane was built in 1955 and recently received a top-down restoration and expansion. The result is a modern interior that accentuates the home’s original post-and-beam construction and enhances Eichler’s vision for indoor-outdoor living.

Set on a spacious lot in the Terra Linda area of San Raphael, California, this Eichler is elongated by a span of clerestory windows and masonry blocks along the front facade.

A private courtyard with a stepping-stone path leads to the home’s main entrance. 

Inside, an open-concept layout connects the primary living areas, including a 1,000-square-foot great room. The kitchen features a 14-foot island, custom cabinetry, quartz countertops, and a full suite of premium Gaggenau appliances. Steps away in the living room, floor-to-ceiling glass doors lead to the backyard while bathing the interior in natural light.

An open floor plan merges the expansive living area. Nine-foot-high walls of glass and a skylight ushers sunlight into the space.

A 14-foot-long island topped with quartz offers bar seating in the kitchen. Light wood cabinetry and built-in Gaggenau appliances round out the space.

Hand-rubbed mahogany paneling contrasts with the crisp, white beams and ceilings, creating a contrasting, minimalist aesthetic throughout. In total, the home features four bedrooms, including a spa-like master suite. A spacious backyard offers multiple seating areas and a lush, fenced-in lawn.

The living room sits just behind the kitchen and features an original masonry block fireplace. A cozy family room is tucked into the corner.

The formal dining area is located on the opposite side of the fireplace. A pair of sliding glass doors open to the backyard while accentuating the post-and-beam design.

The home office is brightened by glass on three sides. All new energy-efficient windows have been installed throughout the home.
