New, 11 comments

If you like mid-century developer Joseph Eichler's houses, then you'll really like this--we've got a two-fer. In honor of the current heat wave, let's dive in with a four bedroom, two bath pool home in Orange's Fairhaven tract. Designed by A. Quincy Jones and Frederick Emmons, this model was deemed "America's house of the month" by LIFE magazine in 1961. Per the listing, the 2,200 square foot post-and-beam features a flexible floor plan with sliding glass panels, interior atrium, beamed ceilings, two fireplaces, ceramic countertops, full copper plumbing, central heat and air, Pebble Tec pool, and new high-efficiency foam roof. Asking price is $650,000.

This 2,077 square foot home in the Balboa Highlands Eichler tract was designed by Claude Oakland. Per the listing, it features four bedrooms, one and three-quarters baths, cathedral-vaulted ceilings, concrete slab floors, a fireplace, formal dining room, and central air conditioning. Located on an 11,378 square foot lot, it's listed at $739,000.
