"Nice Family Neighborhood"

This south most of the Piedmont neighborhoods is a purely residential neighborhood whose twisting streets stare out across the Bay. As far as the homes, its mostly modernized Colonials and English country houses, the first being big and square with fireplaces on one end and flat symmetrical facades; the later being largely brown and cream with decorative hips. There are also a fair number of Ranch and Mission Revivals as well—and few hybrids as well—but they are quite attractive and most have pretty good views. The homes make great use of the topography.

At the edge of the neighborhood there are two good private religious schools, Zion Lutheran and Corpus Christi. They are both well loved by the community.

That is pretty much it for this neighborhood.
