This petite and lovely house located in the east MLK neighborhood was a creative collaboration between Shademaker Studio and Spencer Landscape Company. Built in the 1920s, the house is tucked into a lush landscape. A Mexican adobe brick entry path is framed by understory heroes: Berkeley sedge, purple heart, giant spider lily, and Turk's-cap. The backyard is perfectly set up for entertainment/lounging and a little bit of work. An oil-pipe canopy extends over a carefully remodeled airstream, lounge area, and repurposed storage container. The backyard plants are meant to attract birds, bees, and butterflies. Yaupon holly, Texas redbud, Anacacho orchid tree, and a heritage pecan are the foundation, and numerous perennials fill in the planting areas.
Directions: Head east on MLK, turn right on Springdale Rd, left on Ledesma Rd, then right on Berger St. Please be respectful of neighbors' driveways.
