Those with weak stomachs stop now; found this Wikipedia page then did a search on Redfin for sold properties because I apparently have a masochistic streak:

It's even more sad when you take a Google Street View "drive" through the neighborhood.

I've been through the neighborhood several times. only a handful of good examples exist. Next door is the Fairgrove Eichler tract. Quite an contrast.

nothing is impossible. several families could group together on buy/restore several on a street to turn things around. These are first generation Cliff May prefabs. Great article on this in House & Home back in the day
