jojo, Eichler was a developer, not an architect. He employed several significant ones like Robert Anshen, A. Quincy Jones, Raphael Soriano.
He is not known to have built any single houses (well a few in tracts that did not pan out, and they where in the Bay area)

Here's the redfin listing:

There are some nice things about the house. But the one (rear?) elevation really makes it look like a horse stable.

But crappy description selling job, whoever listed it shoulda known better.
I guess they figured whether it's relevant or not put certain key words in
(like Eichler) so that it turns up on the applicable Google search. Seems to me just skirts the edge of deceptive advertising.

realtors have a code of ethics they must uphold to be licensed. I wish there was a quick and easy way to call someone on it.
I nice flat roof, post & beam a couple blocks over from me got flipped a year ago. the flipper stuck a mansard roof on it and gutted the original interior for Home Depot crap. the realtors ran ads and flyers claiming it was a Cliff May as there as 18 in the neighborhood. I called them and told them there was no way the house was a Cliff May. they said the client told them.
now the house is a crappy rental.

House on Santa Inez in La Canada
Posted: Tue Jun 23, 2009 7:18 pm
I had a chance to see this house last weekend. The house was designed by Eugene Weston III and was published in the LA Times Home Magazine, February 3, 1957.

I really like his work. He also designed wonderful furniture:
What did you think of the house?
Santa Inez House

It is being sold as a fixer. The interior, carport and landscaping need much work. Looks like no one has lived there for sometime. The house has an L shaped plan with the master bath and bedroom on the left of the foyer creating one wing and the living, dining, kitchen, three bedrooms and another bathroom united by a single hall forming the other wing. There are two patios; one off the living room and one off the dining area. There are many built-ins and ample storage for a house of this size. The house is well designed, with many sensitive features still remaining, reflecting Weston's best work of that era.

it's a cool house, worthy of preservation and restoration, not some trendy contempo redo for flipping.

You know when I saw the listing I almost (nobody will believe me now) said it looked like Weston's work but I wimped out. I am very lucky to work in San Diego and get to see many of his projects almost daily but I will tell you the stuff he did in Tujunga and La Cresenta area is really great. Next time I speak with him I will let him know that he was apparently designing for Eichler in La Cresenta in the 50s
Few more photos
