Surrounding the Gourmet Ghetto, the residential district of North Berkeley is home to grand old houses, including prime examples of Berkley brown-shingle, craftsman, neo-Tudor, one-of-a-kind storybook homes, and classic California bungalows. Quiet tree-lined streets, including the magnificent greenery along Mariposa Avenue, and the single-family homes lushly landscaped with jasmine and lavender, make this neighborhood special. The architects who practiced here in the 1920s designed many of the houses in North Berkeley as signature statements. Today, their work endures as a testament to the hand-wrought, and the authentic.
