Charming house, as usual for Eichler. But the court looks bleak. A hefty addition of plant life would soften the look.

A standard complaint about Eichlers is that the interior courts are too small to get enough sun, which would explain the dearth of planting.

I believe it's rare for an Eichler's architects to be identified (that should be Jones & Emmons, shouldn't it, not Emmons & Jones ?) in print.
