Owners of Eichler houses have to decide if they are going to renovate or restore the building, or some combination of the two. In the case of 1755 Lexington Avenue, the owners were able to find a mostly original home that required some work to return it to the original aesthetic. Happily, the cinderblock fireplace and much of the mahogany panelling and was intact. The flooring, roofing and landscaping, however, needed replacement. The end result is very much in the spirit of Eichler.
This Eichler was built in 1956, has four bedrooms, two baths, and is 1730 square feet.
1755 Lexington is one of twelve homes that Inertia was able to visit earlier this month on the Eichler Home Tour 2017. We posted a gallery of Eichlers that were not on the tour in an earlier blog post.
