One of the most delightful experiences I’ve had in the Berkeley community is as a docent for the Berkeley Architectural Heritage Association’s Spring Tour. This year, I won’t be able to volunteer, but if you’re free this Sunday, May 1, don’t miss this chance to get an exclusive peek inside 10 historic Berkeley homes. Each year BAHA focuses on a different neighborhood. This year’s event centers on the region just south of the Municipal Rose Garden and features houses designed by celebrated 20th century architects like Bernard Maybeck and John Galen Howard. It will surely be a treat to see these gorgeous architectural gems, and the gardens should be in their full springtime glory! We weren’t able to take photos of the inside of the houses last year, but here are a few shots I snapped outside.
