"Manors, Pond, and Looping Road"

Barely two dozen homes, Tyson Lake is another pocket neighborhood that barely deserves to be called a neighborhood at all. It is little more than a looping road surrounding a tiny lake (oversized pond really). If it has one claim to being its own neighborhood however, it is the prevalence of Colonial style homes on this looping road. Very underrepresented in the Bay Area, these extremely symmetrical manor like houses really compliment the woodsy loop well. They are also interspersed with a smattering of Tudors and Prairie style homes which are far more common.

Another great little area to live, but hardly worth the designation of being its own neighborhood.
