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 1920's 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.
Most of the homes are within easy walking distance of the Gourmet Ghetto along Shattuck Avenue. Public transportation, including bus lines that run to the North Berkley BART station, makes this neighborhood especially walkable.
A "Spice of Life" street festival celebrates the culinary heritage of North Berkeley; with live entertainment on three stages, cooking demonstrations by local chefs, and more than 100 art exhibitors.
