Where you’ll find Eichler homes
- There about 10,500 Eichlers in Northern California.
- From 1949-74, they were built in tracts in Sacramento, Marin County and San Francisco; in Concord, Walnut Creek, Oakland and Castro Valley in the East Bay; and all over the South Bay and Peninsula, including Redwood City, Los Altos, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, Cupertino, Mountain View, Los Gatos and San Jose.
- Palo Alto has the most Eichlers: about 3,000, with two tracts that are on the National Register of Historic Places.
