A Barrett Drive view by the bus stop, an entrance to the lagoon path on the right. The house in the right background has traditional white walls and a dark beige tile roof; the one in the left background has sandstone-colour bricks on the ground level, pinky-red veneer for the upper level, and blue-violet for the garage door, roof and window frames.

‘Variety is the spice of life,’ is the old saying and a mix of house styles and colours is a good thing — ‘wouldn’t it be a real drag if we were all the same?’
