Won't you be my neighbor? Part One

I recently took a walk with our dog around the South Land Park Hills neighborhood (aka "South Hills") and wanted to share these pictures with you, which can be seen in detail in this Flickr set.

In addition to a small number of Eichlers, our neighborhood is filled with 1950's - 1960's custom modern ranches nestled among giant native oaks and built on gently curved streets. Features include: stunning grand double front doors with large ornamental escutcheons; linear textures; large plate glass windows; extra wide soffits; and use of natural materials such as sedimentary rock. Design elements are mostly geometric, including repetitive patterns of brick and negative space. Many homes in the area have Asian-influenced designs.
