One of the many charms of Marin County real estate is the variety of architectural styles it has to offer. From bungalows to mansions, Marin has homes to suit all tastes and sensibilities. For the mid-century modern enthusiast who particularly appreciates the clean, streamlined look of homes built by Joseph Eichler, Marin County has six distinct Eichler developments, including the small tract of Eichler homes in Strawberry Point, an exclusive, waterfront neighborhood in Mill Valley.
With only a dozen homes, the Strawberry Point Eichler neighborhood in Mill Valley is small, but features homes with floor plans that are slightly larger than the typical Eichler. Built in 1965, these Eichlers were designed by architect Claude Oakland, and include two very unique, original two-story models, something of a rarity in the Eichler world. The Mill Valley Eichler tract contains an interesting mix of styles. In addition to the two-story Eichler homes, the enclave includes the popular gabled model, flattops, and homes with slightly pitched rooflines. Underground utilities help this Eichler neighborhood maintain an open, uncluttered look, with unimpeded views of the surrounding area.
