Oakland  California <br />
The half-timbering on this home in Oakland places it firmly in the realm of Elizabethan revival architecture; however, a closer look reveals the exaggeratedely upset brickwork characteristic of Storybook design.  A wine bottle is embedded in the brick along with a number of other objects, providing another possible explanation for masonry’s appearance.  Also pure Storybook is the home’s idyllic setting beside a meandering creek.
