I just sold this 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom Eichler home located in the Terra Linda neighborhood of San Rafael, California.

This atrium model Eichler home was designed by mid-century architects Jones + Emmons.    The property was a "fixer" Eichler home and was situated next door to two other Terra Linda Eichler homes that I had listed and sold within the past few years (375 Devon Drive and  8 Anchorage Drive).  

The sale price for this Eichler fixer located at 371 Devon Drive in San Rafael was $600,000.   I represented both the sellers and the buyers in this transaction.
