Resource Description:
A small bungalow court of six units in the Colonial Revival style, Colonial Court consists of 6 small frame cottages sited facing each other along a central walkway. The white-painted cottages are set amidst lush greenery and flowering shrubs. Each facing pair has a differently detailed entrance portico: the front bungalows have arched pediments, the middle bungalows, triangular pediments and the rear bungalows broken pediments. Round vents, corbelled chimneys and small-paned windows are addition features. Sited near the freeway (210), the cottages nevertheless retain an air of seclusion and quite repose, oblivious to the rushing traffic to the north.
