Eichler / San Mateo - Highlands (on Lexington Avenue) - for lease

Asking Price: 
$5,500 per month

Unique opportunity to live in the famous Eichler X-100 of the San Mateo Highlands now on the National Register of Historic Places! The Eichler X-100 house of steel, built by Eichler Homes in 1956 to a design by architects Jones & Emmons, was named to the National Register of Historic Places in 2016. It is the only individual Eichler home to be given such an honor. Builder Joe Eichler originally commissioned the X-100 for two main reasons: as a demonstration house for several cutting-edge technologies, such as steel framing; and to serve as the featured attraction for the grand-opening of the SM Highlands development. The X-100 made its debut on October 6, 1956, and remained open three months, attracting 150,000 visitors. The home remains a brave experiment to this day, not only for its steel structure but for other innovations including artificially lit skylights and a dining table with built-in cook top to keep food warm. Furnished with mid-century modern furniture. No pets. Lana Morin Pierce of Intero Real Estate represents the owner.
