Hi, 
My husband and I just purchased a beautiful Eichler in the Highlands in San Mateo.  We have searched extensively online (Berkeley, old Highlands brochures) and have asked the county, but there seem to be no blueprints available for our model.  Does anyone have a copy of the original blueprints for a 1957 eichler built on Yorktown Road?  Any help would be appreciated.
 
Thanks in advance!

Update, no luck online with the UC berkeley database and also no luck after contacting Scott Coates who has an a collection of surving Anshen and Allen plans.
Does anyone know which models Emmons and Jones produced in the Highlands?  
Thanks!

Hey there. Anshen / Allen Eichler plans are hard to come by, but I did find this in the archive for A. Quincy Jones 
Below is the link to search Jones & Emmons archived work.

in the "search this collection" area type in = san mateo highlands & your search will give you 15 pages of info... If you use the keyboard function "ctrl f" it will allow you to find the exact phrases you are looking for. In this case I just used "san mateo"
Just going over it quickly though, on page 3 of 15, (again searching with "ctrl f" for san mateo), I found this 
box 1390, folder 9
Eichler homes / with breathtaking views in the Highlands. San Mateo
Listing the following house plans SM-104 / SM-114 / SM-223 / SM-100 / SM-233 / SM-134
There is a telephone number & email contact for the library there at UCLA & they are super helpful if you have anymore questions regarding finding your neighborhood's site plan & specific floor plan.
I hope this helps ;)

Hi Rooksie,

Thanks so much for all that helpful information! We will inquire with the special collections at UCLA and see if we can find our home plan there.
