We purchased our house in June, 2000. It's located in an Eichler devlopment known as 'The Highlands' in San Mateo, California.
Designed by A. Quincy Jones, it's an atrium model with four bedrooms, two baths, and 1,660 sq. ft. of living space. In 1959 when new, the house sold for about $24,000. We paid just a bit more in 2000.
The lot is rectangular, 68' wide by 110' deep, set on a slight slope, with the rear of the house, which is almost entirely floor-to-ceiling glass, facing east.
The front door is to the side of the central carport, and opens into an atrium space (shown at right) which provides access through three different sliding glass doors to the living room, dining/kitchen area, or home office area. Take a tour.
