This subdivision on Home Avenue was built in 1913 and 1914 and represents a variety of repeating house types designed in the Craftsman style. The one and two-story homes are modest in size, and were originally clad in stucco. The subdivision provides a unique neighborhood character due to the shallow lots along the east side of the street.
