All my favorite things: art, decorating, landscaping and Eichlers.
Says the Inside Outside tour website:
The nation’s largest contiguous collection of Eichlers is nestled in the hills of the San Mateo Highlands. The Highlands Eichler Home Tour offers a rare opportunity to get an inside–and outside–personal look into ten fabulous homes and benefit our local school.Here is a snap of a San Mateo Eichler from back in 1972. And its cutey pie family.
This sounds like the Eichler tour to end all Eichler tours.
A truly unique Eichler neighborhood. The Highlands development is composed of 700 single-story Eichler homes, and a handful of original two-story Eichler homes making it the nation’s largest contiguous collection of Eichlers. It is also the home of the famous X-100 Eichler - Steel House of the Future designed by A. Quincy Jones and built in 1956, as well as the "LIFE House" - a unique multi-level home built by Eichler in 1958 based on a design by architect Pietro Belluschi. It was featured in a Life Magazine article in November 1958.
