Rolling hills, wooded valleys, flower filled parks. Streets wind through the hills in the “residential park” of Lakeshore. Inspired by England’s “garden suburbs,” famed landscape architects Olmsted Brothers laid out winding streets following the natural contours of the land. Homes date from the 1920 and 30s, with original owners hiring some of the most notable Oakland architects of the time, including Julia Morgan, Maybeck & White, and Charles McCall. Today the neighborhood still retains its period flavor, with large romantic homes in the Italian Renaissance, Tudor, Spanish, Monterey, French provincial, and Colonial styles lending a sense of country charm.
