Designed for Joseph Eichler in the early 1960’s by architectural partners, Bob Anshen & Steve Allen, this Fairhaven LA-91 plan is a rare offering where light, location, orientation and condition come together in a perfect union and illustrates the timeless appeal of Mid-Century Modern architecture, and perhaps more specifically – Californian Modernism – where our temperate climate affords floor-to-ceiling glass walls and seamless indoor-outdoor living. Situated on an interior street at the end of the cul-de-sac on a large south-facing lot – a crucial detail that allows for ample unmitigated natural light on the north & east sides of the home – this single-level, 4 bedroom, 2 bath open concept floor plan is surrounded by trees and high fencing, affording the home yet another luxury – privacy – a precious commodity in an ever-intrusive world. The current owners’ improvements to the property have stayed true to the original modernist ethos, while bringing the home into this century with contemporary materials, fixtures and features. The large backyard is the perfect place to entertain friends & family or just escape with a book. From the original 1960 Eichler Fairhaven home brochure– “Basking in the sun-splashed City of Orange, the community of Fairhaven brings the Wonderful World of Eichler to Southern California. The climate is warm – ideal the year round for indoor/outdoor living. There’s a world of work and play in every direction. Eichler has designed Fairhaven so that the natural beauty of its tree-studded setting has been undisturbed. Don’t you agree you’ll live better – happier – in Fairhaven?” I don’t know if we could’ve said it better. // Note: The Fairhaven Eichler tract is a recognized historic district and the home may be eligible for Mills Act status, which would reduce property taxes significantly.
