Northern Houses (also called Risky Houses) were a bunch of houses near The Block (formerly Risky Reels) and Wailing Woods spread across the northeastern area of the Battle Royale island. The houses have now been replaced with mountains and villages by Sunny Steps.

Some of the houses here are identical to those of the Abandoned Farm (POI).
