Tucked away on the side of a mountain sit eight little cottages seemingly plucked from a fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm. 

Strolling in the courtyard, decorator Stan Nelson explains, “At first glance, one might think the houses are identical, but further inspection reveals that each one has its own specific architectural details.” And Stan should know because he has lived in cottage number five for 25 years. His house first appears in the city’s property records in 1929, but the bungalow court originated in 1925.
