The two buildings are protected by a low stone wall topped by a wrought iron fence. There is a generous lawn with bedding plants set therein. Urns hold additional flowering plants. There are several evergreen bushes and a fountain to one side. The trees curbside and next to the homes are in full leaf. One of the homes is for sale. Seven pedestrians are in the scene.
