The 10 Most Coveted Eichler Homes of 2019

Built in 1962, the four-bedroom, two-bath home has already been spruced up with modern features that respect the home’s original midcentury modern character. Highlights include updated bathrooms with Carrara marble and walnut cabinetry, a private backyard, and a renovated kitchen with a pretty impressive "edible garden" off the side.

Eichler homes flipped the script on how living spaces could work for the modern family. Taking a cue from Frank Lloyd Wright himself, Joseph Eichler introduced open floor plans, walls of glass, and indoor/outdoor living into the everyday home. It’s these same design principles that contribute to the timelessness of his structures—no wonder, then, that Eichlers don’t last long on the real estate market. This year, we’ve covered several of these gems for sale; here are the 10 that got the most attention.

With a career span of more than 70 years, Frank Lloyd Wright designed and built more than 500 structures across the U.S.—and influenced countless others through the mentorship of his prodigies. From real estate news, to restorations, and even demolitions, it comes as no surprise that changes to Frank Lloyd Wright–designed buildings make headlines. Luckily, Dwell keeps you in the know with the top Frank Lloyd Wright news stories of the year.
