17th Drive and Dunlap Ave
If you've ever wondered what a "character ranch" is, then wonder no more. Marketed as "Dutch Village" in 1958, these all-electirc houses presented by Healy Homes weren't afraid to show their European flair. Is it possible Bob Healy is the same "west side homebuilder" of Al Beadle's Healy-Fearnow Residence
? Homes started at $11,950, the homes are easy to spot with their jutting rafters, scalloped eaves, weeping mortar, built-in planters and diamond mullions. They were proud to announce the blending of kitchen and family room, and visitors to the open houses were offered a bag of tulip bulbs, guaranteed to bloom. After developing Dutch Village Healy purchased more land at 35th Avenue and Glendale to Develop the Sungold community with less outlandish, yet similar details.
This home's carport has been enclosed, but that shingle facade is just too good not to include here.
