Orange house description

This home is a mid century modern work of art designed by the renowned German developer Joseph Eichler. Influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright and designed with the concept of 'bringing the outside in' this home is built around a 400 square foot atrium with walls of glass that showcase not only the beautiful atrium complete with fountain but also the tropical backyard with lagoon style pool. Six sliding doors allow easy access to the beautiful gardens that surround this home including a sliding door in the master bedroom which is only steps away from the pool. Fountains throughout the yards compliment the serene environment. Built in BBQ complete with refrigerator and sink for poolside grilling. Outdoor lighting brings the gardens to life at night. Peaceful and relaxing. This open floor plan home has been recently remodeled and includes bamboo flooring, kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. Wood burning fireplace surrounded by walls of glass located in living room. Master bedroom, complete with adjoining bathroom and walk-in closet, features Tempur-pedic mattress for support & comfort, maximizing a great night of sleep. Master bathroom features imported Italian flooring, bamboo vanity, Graff water fixtures, and large garden view window. Guest bathroom features designer vanity with black granite counter tops and Hansgrohe faucet, deep soaking tub enclosed with glass shower doors, contemporary flooring with matching black granite accents, frosted glass door for natural lighting and a garden view window. Beautifully furnished and decorated, modern with a touch of the tropics. Flat screen HD 1080 TV's in living room, master bedroom and 2nd bedroom. Sony Blu-Ray player with surround sound in living room. PlayStation 3 in bedrooms for games, Blu-Ray & DVD's. CD player in master bedroom and kitchen. iPod for your musical choices. Majority of lighting has nighttime dimmers. Perfect for romantic getaways, artist or writers retreat, and family vacations alike. Very posh. Centrally located in the County of Orange this home is conveniently located to many Southern California attractions including Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, Angel Stadium, Honda center and more. Close to beaches and mountains. Catch a few early morning waves at world famous 'surf city' Huntington Beach and then hit the slopes of Big Bear Mountain for some afternoon snowboarding (season permitting). Freeway close to Hollywood, Palm Springs, San Diego and the shopping and cuisine of Newport Beach. Plenty to see and do or do nothing at all. Don't settle for a typical vacation home when you can have a vacation experience. Enjoy.

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: My wife fell in love with this house the first time she saw it and I was sold as well. I refer to it as the Wahine House (Wahine - Hawaiian for wife). Through a collaborative effort we put the finishing touches on this unique home. We had many happy years in this house and look forward to vacationing here ourselves in the future. We know that you will enjoy your stay here as well.

                  Why the Owner Chose Orange:
                  Unique neighborhood, currently being considered by the City of Orange as a local historic district. Centrally located in the county of Orange, close to beaches, mountains, deserts, sporting venues, fine dining, shopping, and amusement parks including Disneyland which is less than 5 miles away.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Very private. Large back yard and side yards surrounded by tropical foliage. Neighborhood consists of other single level Eichler homes, so there are no second story windows looking down into the yard. The front of the house was used as a backdrop for neighborhood scene in the movie 'Speed Racer' starring John Goodman and Susan Sarandon. Several books and articles have been written about these unique homes.
