This tract offered "country style living" in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles, CA. Ray Hommes and Company developed the tract and commissioned Edward H. Fickett to design the standard house models. Hommes sited the tract on a parcel bounded by Saticoy Street on the south, Louise Avenue on the east, Roscoe Boulevard on the north and White Oak Avenue on the west. Brentwood Builders, Incorporated, and the Sherman Park Development Company were listed as owners and developers. Two-bedroom house cost as little as $9,780, while three-bedroom models started at $10,710.

The houses of the tract, done in a variety of floor plans, all were one-story ranch houses, emphasizing indoor-outdoor living areas such as covered porches in the front and back yards. All living and dining areas were unified spaces.
