Welcome to the wonderful world of Eichler! There are roughly 100 Eichler homes in LA County all in the Balboa Highlands tract in Granada Hills and half of these might contribute to the actual design and architecture of the original. To find one that has been preserved in almost every detail to the original is like finding a needle in a haystack…. and here it is! Welcome to 12740 Jimeno Ave: the needle in a haystack. This Claude Oakland designed home has been lovingly maintained and tastefully kept in its original condition with the iconic Eichler atrium, post and beam construction, floor to ceiling windows, mahogany walls, aggregate flooring, and anodized aluminum and burlap closet doors. Stepping through the front door you are peacefully greeted by that iconic atrium entryway strategically located in the middle of the house with tropical landscape, open skies, and floor-to-ceiling windows surrounding the perimeter which allows for the natural light to flood to the interior of the house. Entering the house you step into the spacious living room and dining room with mahogany walls, wood fireplace, open floor plan, and plenty of natural light. Your attention is immediately drawn to the backyard, perfect for entertaining guests and soaking in the California sun. The kitchen was tastefully remodeled in 2005 and with the utmost attention to the original design. Originally built as a 5 bedroom, a wall separating the main bedroom and one of the other rooms was removed to create one expansive bedroom, complete with a seating area to peacefully enjoy a morning coffee or evening book. This is the stuff Mid-Century Modern dreams are made of… This one-of-a-kind gem is truly a must-see for any Mid-Century enthusiast because it truly encompasses Joseph Eichler’s famous words: “I call them Eichler homes… There’s nothing else like them”.
