Outdoor Month on Apartment Therapy seems like the perfect time to drool over some photos of yet another gorgeous Bay Area Eichler home. Many of the homes built by Joseph Eichler's company in the 1950s were designed to integrate indoor and outdoor living, with airy atriums, vast glass walls, and sliding doors. Case in point: this Lucas Valley bungalow that just went on the market. Even if you're not looking to buy, the photos are worth a good long covetous gaze...

This particular Eichler home was designed by Bay Area architect Claude Oakland. As you can see in the photos, it has undergone extensive renovation, but luckily the basic design and layout of the house is still intact. Original features that are desirable to current buyers, like radiant floor heating, have been updated.

Most of all, we love the glass walls and skylights, perfectly situated to take in an amazing view of the surrounding hills. Check out the rest of the photos here. The home is listed with Marin Modern Real Estate for $1.5 million.
