These two houses stand across the street from one another. On the east side, number 445 (not pictured) was designed to emulate an English cottage and features multi-colored rough-cut brick, a steeply pitched roof with slate tiles and a large fanciful brick chimney. Number 456 was designed by a Norwegian architect in the Spanish Mission style, but its eclectic contribution to the streetscape also includes a pediment suggesting a Dutch influence.
