188 Eichler Homes
Jones + Emmons
The East Bay’s second largest Eichler neighborhood, arranged over Greenridge Road, Highwood Road, and adjacent cul-de-sacs.
You’ll find a mix of some of the best looking (in our opinion) atrium models, built along a high ridge –many with breathtaking views of San Francisco Bay.
Models include a 1500 SqFt 3/2 courtyard, 1800 SqFt 4/2 carport, two 1800+ SqFt 4/2 flat-tops, a 1900 SqFt 4/2 pitched, and 5/2 2000 SqFt double A-frame model.
Like most Eichler ‘hoods, Greenridge has a 3-bed option. Some people enclose the front with a fence/wall to create a private courtyard.
The carport/atrium model is a familiar-looking variation on those in Concord, and Walnut Creek.
There are two further 4/2 flat-tops, which look similar from the front (siding versus shingle) but with very different interior layouts.
Note the kitchen –in front of the atrium, with a separate all-purpose room, versus a combo room, to the right of the atrium.
The largest neighborhood plans are two iconic models –the Claude Oakland-designed pitched-roof/atrium model, and the classic A Quincy Jones double A-frame.
As two of the later-built Greenridge homes, most of these appear towards the top of the ridge –more desirable for views (on one side of Greenridge), and less passing traffic.
