Most of these properties are one-story residences, and ranch or ramblers represent the predominant architectural style of the buildings in this area. Because the area is surrounded by wooded parkland, the neighborhood is filled with mature trees, giving this community a relaxed and almost suburban-like feeling, though it’s a short distance from the state’s capitol building.
