This was the 1st Patio Home project we built. The homes were completed in 1968. We won our First of our Two National Awards from the American Institute of Architects on this project. We were featured in the PUD (Plan Unit Development) Magazine. The picture in the magazine article is of the model home.
The section of Evelyn across the street was zoned Heavy Industrial. The City of Sunnyvale had no faith in the concept of the Patio Homes. When the project was approved on a 4 to 3 vote, one on the City Council member stated, "Well we have just created an instant slum in Sunnyvale".
When we were building these patio homes, there was an outdoor movie theater located across the street on Evelyn. It was owned by Raymond J. Syufy. Syufy developed the Century Theaters. When we were in the process of building these house, Syufy expanded his drive in from 1 screen to 3 screens. For a time, you could watch movies from our houses. The reason for this was because the trees they had planted as screening for the new screens, were too small to hide the screens.
We have sold all of these house once when we built them. Nobody can help you sell your Bahl Patio Home Better than Bahl Homes. We built them, live in them ourselves & Love them. Here is a example of a Reed & Evelyn Bahl Patio Home we listed and sold for the owner. This listing is an early example of what Real Estate looked like when the Internet was young.
For more information, we have dedicated a special section of our web site to The Facts and History of Bahl Patio Homes.
