Storybook single family homes are not all that unusual in the East Bay. We have a number of nice tracts as well as plenty of great custom examples. Storybook duplexes on the other hand are a bit less common, so we are pleased to have this interesting example to share today. The home is a side by side duplex that from the exterior looks just like a single family dwelling. But once inside the entrance turret there are two doors. The units are not symmetrical so each one has its own interesting spaces and unique details making for a certain individuality that is not always discernible in multi-unit structures.
