To renovate an outdated 1970s ranch in Pleasanton, California, Destination Eichler worked with Eyerly Architecture to bring this split-level home into the present day. While the young family appreciated the 1970s character of the home, they wanted a breath of fresh air with the added functionality seen in today’s buildings. The updated residence now features contemporary details, mid-century furnishings, and an abundance of beautiful fireclay tile.
A wall of glass opens from the multi-purpose room with views of Mount Diablo. Another focal point of the room is the double-sided fireplace, which has been updated with vertical wood moldings and tiles in a large, circular pattern.
The kitchen has been updated with light wood cabinets and a hexagonal tile mosaic wall to complement the blue palette.
The main living room has a sloping wooden ceiling and the other side of a double-sided fireplace. Clad in matte black tiles, the fireplace has a minimalist aesthetic that matches perfectly with the white walls and beams.
In the basement, which the original architect named “Rumpus Room,” a new kitchenette and bar is there to entertain guests.
