5377 Greenridge Rd – Gorgeous Atrium Eichler

Thanks to its striking exterior color composition and unique blend of materials, this Eichler is truly a neighborhood standout. Located in Castro Valley’s Greenridge community and built in 1960, the home’s continuing modern allure is a testament to the thoughtful collaboration between renowned builder Joseph Eichler and architects Jones and Emmons. To this day atrium model Eichlers remain some of the most sought after examples of mid-century modern architecture. And true to its architectural significance, much of the home’s interior still showcases the architect’s original designs and functionality; from mahogany wood paneling throughout and fully functioning radiant heating system, to the floor-to-ceiling glass walls and clerestory windows that allow natural sunlight to drench the home’s interior.

The much beloved interior atrium has been covered to allow for year-round enjoyment and its lush garden can be accessed from almost every part of the home. The indoor/outdoor lifestyle continues through the back of the home that leads directly to a spacious backyard with extra privacy and no adjoining neighbors to the rear. Perfect for entertaining or just enjoying time with family and friends. A newer foam roof allows for improved insulation throughout the year and a thoughtfully remodeled kitchen stays true to the home’s aesthetic while providing its owners with the modern conveniences to which we’ve all become accustomed. The kitchen cabinetry is custom, the tile backsplash is Heath, and the countertops are Dekton. The addition of a pantry and a hidden pullout pegboard cabinet add much needed additional storage space to the kitchen. The floors consist of porcelain tile throughout and at 1,834 SF (per public records) the home’s 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths allow for ample space and functionality which has become all the more important in today’s work and teach from home lifestyle.

The Greenridge Eichler community is an enclave of approximately 185 Eichler homes built between 1960-1965. These homes were designed by architects Claude Oakland and Jones & Emmons. Greenridge is one of Eichler’s few hillside communities which in this case resulted in a spacious backyard that leads to greenspace to the rear of the house. This particular community offers top ranked schools and is within walking distance of Greenridge Park. BART is just a short drive away and easy freeway access makes this an ideal central commute location to the South and North Bay as well as San Francisco and the Peninsula.
