I love these houses. I am in the Fairbrae tract. I am trying to find again other Eichlers in Sunnyvale. I know I saw one small grouping somewhere north of El camino (near Wshington Park). Can anyone give me street names.

Also I want to visit the one in Stanford that I heard is often open for tours. How do I get that address or phone #.

I would also like to know street names of the ones in Cupertino that I understand have been made a Heritage Status?

Anyone , can you answer any of above questions

In Sunnyvale:
1) There is a small cluster of late Eichlers at about Iowa and Bernardo (Iowa east of Bernardo).
2) There is another group of Eichlers just off Hollenbeck a block south of El Camino. Go west at the first light south of El Camino, turn right at the T intersection by the middle school and you will see them.
3) Between Hollenbeck and Mary just south of Fremont there are some Eichlers (you can see the roof lines above the fences when on Fremont).
4) Head south on Wright Ave from Fremont and just before Homestead you will see another group of Eichlers (and the infamous Wright Ave monster home).
5) There is another group of Eichlers just west of Wolfe and south of Fremont. Sorry I can't remember the access street name.

I am sure there are more in Sunnyvale, but that is all I can think of off the top of my head.

P.S. As an added bonus: From Fairbrae, head north on Spinosa across Remington. Take either the first or second right after Remington and look at the modernist houses. I believe these are the original "pre-architect" Eichlers. They look nothing like what you think an Eichler looks like.

The ones by Hollenbeck/El Camino are on Cumberland, Piper, Brookline and Pear. There are 6 Five bedroom Eichlers by Claude Oakland in that Group.

There are also some behind Homestead High School from the same era, turn onto Mackenzie Dr off of Homestead Rd.
