Other features include: spacious bedrooms, renovated bathrooms, post and beam construction, walls of glass, flat commercial grade foam roof, and desert landscaping to name a few. Joseph Eichler teamed up with architect Claude Oakland and created this unique layout, which is one of the few floor plans where the atrium is located in the middle of the home and not part of the entrance. There is possibility for additional income since these types of homes have been commonly sought after and featured in movies, commercials and print ads if you choose to register with a location agency. These homes can be a source of inspiration. Steve Jobs childhood Eichler home had inspired the simple and sleek designs we now see in his Apple products.

Nice one. I wonder if living in Granada Hills is a little isolated and far out of town though... Maybe the schools are good though? Very nice.

They do have great schools in the area. Located with easy access to 405, 118 and the 5 freeways, you can get around the city with ease. Open house Sunday June 24th 1-4pm. Come see for yourself.

It is isolated but charming in its own way. Very peaceful area but yes, you'll have a hard time convincing your friends to come all the way out here and you'll hear lots of people saying "we're nearly to Magic Mountain!"

For a place which is supposed to be a bit isolated, it's location sure didn't have any adverse effect on the sale of those two Eichlers. Each one lasted less than a week on the MLS before being scooped! No surprise from me though, the Granada Hills Eichler tract looks like a totally gorgeous neighborhood, and having an Eichler with mountain views seems like the icing on the cake!

Yes, the Granada Hills Eichler track is on the northern edge of Los Angeles. But it is not so isolated that your friends won't drop in for a good party. Plus, you will make even more new friends with all of your great new neighbors.

"Isolated" is in the eye of the beholder. Door-to-door, it's a ten minute drive from me, and my neighborhood sure isn't "isolated."
Maybe it's too far for your hipster friends in Silver Lake to ride their fixies to. But that's probably a good thing. ;)

Yup I peeked in (the back sgd was unlocked) when it was for sale a while back in the original condition and it was atrocious, and it looked like an unpermitted garage addition did they revert it back to a garage. This was originally a 5 br model and the made the MBR larger by adding br5 to the MBR. The owners did a remarkable job of bringing this one back. Altho I have issue with the planter at the front the masonry is cracked and seems that it should be fixed, perhaps they did so. Overall this one's a keeper.
