architectural character of the historic neighborhood with detached
residences, private yards, and detailing that creates a visual texture
and interest throughout the site.
to the rise in the topography from the street, and the severe drop-off
to the north, the 5 units across the rear portion of the site are
substantially concealed from the street and face a common parking
court and communal landscaping. The 3 units visible from the street
are sited as closely as possible to conform to the image of main
and secondary structures found throughout the district. Unit No.
3, in fact, is designed to resemble a carriage house. A single large
duplex unit is located at the end of the driveway, and sited higher
than the adjoining units to create a visual focal point to the complex.

roof, porch and balcony features, as well as colors, are mixed and
matched to create nine distinct private homes.
