Comments:A twin (mirror image) of this home is located at 12802 Figaro. Two other examples of this home can be found in nearby Memorial Plaza, one of which utilizes a wood slat privacy wall.
Architectural Comments:The foyer includes terrazzo flooring and is flanked by a long brick planter. Both bathrooms feature original mosaic tiles and hardware similar to those listed in House & Home. Floor to ceiling windows are found throughout the common areas although the large window adjacent to the entry is a later addition that is very much in keeping with the look of the home. Pocket doors are used throughout the living, dining and kitchen areas. The dining area features an original light fixture.
