An arch made out of Carmel chalkstone forms the entrance to Stonehenge, a magical court in Alameda, California. This highly original cottage court was designed in 1926  and built from 1927 to 1929 by a man with an equally original name, Christopher Columbus Howard. The court’s basic layout is essentially the same as a bungalow court, but the artificial aging of the cottages, curving paths and effervescent plantings exude a special charm seen only in whimsical Storybook -style architecture.
