Eichler Home Renovation in Cupertino

Add Modern Conveniences While Retaining the Characteristic Charm

Eichler Home Renovation

Eichler home renovations can be tricky and messy if you do not partner with a trusted Eichler home remodeling contractor. Besides in-depth knowledge of the local Cupertino building codes and unique zoning ordinances, your contractor also needs to understand the minimalist aesthetic and ethos of a typical Eichler. At Flegel’s Construction, we are well-versed with the distinctive style of Eichler homes. Our remodeling experts specialize in preserving the characteristic features of this epitome of mid-century modern homes.

Preserve and Restore Your Eichler Home in Cupertino

Featuring 223 Eichlers built in the early 1960s, Fairgrove is the hub of Eichler homes in the Cupertino area. Except for a few smaller houses that are around 1,200 square feet, most of the other Eichlers have between 1400–1500 square feet. Most of them feature the 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom layout, with a mix of atrium models and courtyard entry. Cupertino has rezoned this neighborhood in order to encourage maintaining the unique exterior styling of the typical Eichler construction.

As experts in preserving and restoring Eichler homes throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, we can help you successfully complete an Eichler home renovation in Cupertino. This includes an extensive range of modernizations, including:

  • Upgrading an old, tired cook space into a space-maximizing gourmet kitchen
  • Adding a luxurious ensuite bathroom in the primary bedroom
  • Updating the living areas with sleek and smart amenities
  • Repairs and energy-efficient replacements for the doors and windows, without compromising on the fenestration guidelines
  • Updating a worn or damaged roof while maintaining its characteristic style and design
  • Replacing exterior cladding materials without getting rid of the plywood siding or vertical wood board

Eichler Homes Hold Pride of Place in Cupertino

As home to Apple’s headquarters, Cupertino is one of the most well-known cities in Silicon Valley. The city features sprawling green spaces, an array of glass and steel commercial buildings, and several charming neighborhoods with distinctive Eichler homes. Most of Cupertino’s Eichlers are in Fairgrove, between Miller, Steven’s Creek, Bollinger, and Lawrence. Some of the other communities featuring Eichler homes include Alderbrook, Calvert, Monta Vista, Rainbow, Oak Valley, Portal Park, Rancho San Antonio, and Calabazas. While existing homeowners love their Eichlers, fans of this mid-century architectural style either wait for years for an Eichler home listing to come up on the property market or they custom build an Eichler-style home.
