This “meticulously maintained” midcentury modern home in Thousand Oaks is a portal into the 1960s.
The post and beam was developed in 1964 by Joseph Eichler and designed by Claude Oakland, who also worked on Eicher’s landmarked Balboa Highlands tract in Granada Hills. The four-bedroom model features a spacious atrium—a classic Eichler feature—as well as floor-to-ceiling windows throughout, exposed beams galore, and a host of original elements. Those include mahogany-paneled doors, globe lights, “radiant-heated polished concrete floors,” and formica counters in the kitchen.
The master suite has been enlarged but “just enough to accommodate a more comfortable space for today’s living while respecting the original Eichler design.”
1624 Stoddard Avenue sits on a roughly 9,300 square foot lot, leaving lots of room in the backyard for entertaining. The landscaped area includes beautiful native plantings, an area for bocce ball, shaded seating, and a fit pit area.
The house is listed for $1.275 million with Glenn and Nicole Hobbs of White House Properties.
