Though income properties are not generally our primary focus here at Edificionado, it is difficult to pass on a group of duplexes designed by Henry Gutterson and sited prominently above Maybeck’s famed Rose Walk.

The Rose Walk itself was completed in 1913, but the structures that we see around it today were not built until after the Great Berkeley Fire of 1923. Gutterson located the homes with great deference to the walk, and indeed he is said to have consulted with Maybeck regarding their siting and design. The result is a wonderfully unified composition – a community of like structures organized thoughtfully around one of Berkeley’s best loved pedestrian thoroughfares.
