Two Stately Houses, Benton Park West

Update: I went back and looked at this block in January of 2016 and July of 2020.

These two houses, one in buff brick, the other in red, jumped out at me recently in the northern portion of Benton Park West. They look identical, but the developer changed the front facade and porches slightly to make them look different, belying the fact they have the same floor plans behind the front facades. I have a feeling the buff brick house, with its square porch, once had a roof of similar elevation as the rounded porch. While they are technically apartment buildings, the builder clearly wanted to give the appearance of a single family home.
