I don't know the origin of the buildings or if they are currently in use. This is on a busy commercial street, but there are no signs to indicate it is currently occupied. A quick check shows that it was an antique store for a while. We'll walk along the sidewalk from west to east. The Texas Mountain Laurel and other large plants offer a hint of the impressive view beyond.
Just on the other side the scene changes dramatically to agaves on a berm in front of the driveway. The rocks, while looking random, are well placed.
Back along the sidewalk there's a great mailbox, agave, ocotillo, and a Retama tree. The agaves were planted close to the sidewalk and the lower leaves are trimmed back.
Up above the plants include bear grass, yucca, and we get a glimpse of the buildings
Along the way there's enough of a clearing to get a good look at the front entry and the stonework around the door.
Matching stonework around the window on a small building to the right.
Back to the street, the agaves create quite a jumble at eye level

Nearing the end, more agave and yucca
One last peek over the fence before I go on about my errands.
Those are our beautiful native Texas Mountain Laurel flowers to the right. The flowers are intensely fragrant and smell like grape kool-aid.
If this place ever re-opens as a business I would love to see inside. Now on my way....
