Chadwick Street has several intriguing houses. 303, a white house with three black horse's-head hitching posts in front, is one of the most elegant of townhouses. Next to it, at 305 one comes to a curiosity, it looks like a beehive — or even a dovecote, a little reminiscent of the eccentric Barcelona architect Antonio Gaudi. Walk to the corner of Cypress — we have to turn, there is no other way to go — and we are now facing the side of the Tenth Presbyterian again.
