The History of Silicon Valley’s Eichler Home Development

Classic Eichler Home Features

Eichler Homes Today

Today, there are approximately 11,000 Eichler homes in northern California, with many of them scattered across Silicon Valley Eichler neighborhoods. While Joseph Eichler sought to build affordable but innovative housing, the price (and value) of his signature homes has skyrocketed over the last decade.

Due to the resurging popularity of mid-century modern design, open floor plans, and population growth across Silicon Valley, Eichler homes have been in high demand, often selling for a higher premium than traditional homes in the same neighborhood. 

Additionally, there are countless Eichler devotees who are willing to pay top dollar for a unique Silicon Valley home with a rich design history.

If you are thinking of buying or selling an Eichler home, you’ll want to work with a team of specialists that understands Eichler’s unique history, structure and style. If you’re interested in buying or selling an Eichler home, we’d love to hear from you. 

How Eichler Homes Inspired Apple’s Co-founders

Both Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak — two of Apple’s co-founders — were raised in modernist Silicon Valley homes. Jobs’ Los Altos house was designed by an Eichler competitor and Wozniak grew up in a true Eichler home in Sunnyvale. It’s our belief that having roots in modernist design and architecture affected both Jobs and Wozniak — and set the foundation for Apple’s thoughtful, sleek and utilitarian products.
