Ridges: Briar Ridge and Greenridge
The Ridges in Castro Valley, many built in the mid 1970s, showcase a variety of architecture. Homes range from small planned unit developments to semi-custom homes to mid-century modern and then to classic Eichler homes. These homes have mature landscaping with views of local greenbelt or San Francisco Bay Area.
"Eichler homes are from a branch of modernistic architecture that has come to be known as "California Modern," and typically feature glass walls, post-and-beam construction, and open floor plans in a style indebted to these homes. Eichler Homes exteriors featured flat and/or low-sloping A-framed roofs, and facades with clean geometric lines. One of Eichler's signature concepts was to "Bring the Outside In," achieved via skylights and floor-to-ceiling glass windows looking out on protected and private outdoor rooms, patios atriums, and gardens."
