Unique Eichler Design and Character

Defined by their mid-century modern design, Eichler homes are among the most timeless residences in California, and this one epitomizes such character. With exposed beam ceiling, and floor-to-celing windows, this home beckons you into its open, connected living spaces, anchored by an updated kitchen with painted cabinets, stainless steel appliances and skylight. The adjacent living room with fireplace flows seamlessly to the private backyard with wraparound wood deck—creating seamless indoor and outdoor space for entertaining and daily living. The primary bedroom with bath and closet sits at the back of the home for added privacy, with a sliding glass door opening to back deck. Three additional bedrooms, including one next to the primary that can be a den/office, provide ample flexibility for today’s live/work-from-home lifestyle.

Community and Convenience

Palo Alto’s Triple El neighborhood, which takes its name from three streets within it (Elsinore Drive, Elsinore Court, and El Cajon), is a community of single-story Eichler homes combining contemporary architecture and well-maintained, thoughtful landscaping. Today, Triple El continues to exhibit its charm, privacy, and “small-town” feel with a diverse mix of long-time and new owners. Wide streets and pedestrian-friendly sidewalks make this a safe neighborhood for play, exercise, and social gatherings, beautified year-round with large, mature trees. What’s more, Triple El is conveniently close to many amenities — including Edgewood Plaza shopping center, exceptional schools, the Palo Alto main library, Rinconada Park and Lucie Stern Community Center — and just minutes from vibrant Downtown Palo Alto, Stanford University, and Stanford Shopping Center.
