Houses in the Neighborhood

Isaac and I are house shopping. In these early stages, we are learning the neighborhoods we like, and what we like about houses. It is a great excuse for going on long walks and bike rides and look at houses, which has always been something I have enjoyed doing. I have learned through this process that I love cement and stucco. Some houses look like frosted cupcakes. Some of them I feel really sorry for, because they are so neglected or badly dealt with.

Riding down Mathews street near Ward in Oakland today, Isaac and I came across this beauty.
Yes, that is metallic silver stucco.

It's not for sale, but I am so in love.

Wow, this house looks either like Murcury's helmet or something out of Barbarella. Perhaps both.
