These houses in an older Raleigh neighborhood are new. They have been built at the same scale, more or less, as the other houses on the block.
Their height is in keeping with the one- or one-and-a-half story height of other houses on the street.
The horizontal emphasis of their bungalow style is in keeping with the ranch houses and bungalows on the street.
As far as possible the designers kept the large trees that shade the neighborhood and its sidewalks.
As a result of the designers' and buyers' respect for the surroundings, these houses are extremely desirable in and of themselves, as well as making the neighborhood even more desirable. Everyone wins.
What lovely civic manners these houses have! One would wish very much to make the acquaintance of their owners and builders.
