The residential blocks in the early streetcar suburb of Ashby Station are peppered with charming clusters of homes in matching style: groups of Colonial Revival two-story “Classic boxes,”; Colonial Revival cottages; High-Peaked Gable Colonial Revival houses; and Craftsman bungalows may be seen on practically every street.

A few of these harmonious clusters are presented here. All of them can be found in the streets surrounding the Ashby BART parking lots and adjacent to the future Ed Roberts Campus.
