Original homes in Lyon Park, Lyon Village, and Ashton Heights
The original homes in these neighborhoods are traditional, with craftsman and colonial styles predominant. There is a lot of personality in these homes that were built starting in 1922, with most completed in the 1950s.

These homes are casually interspersed with more contemporary styles, lending an eclectic air to most streets.
