Whither Bradley Park?

I was looking at this 1963 home in Bradley Park the other day when I came across this lot. For the most part, the original California contemporary homes by Ken Freeman remain. Some have been modified while others have met the wrecking ball to make way for homes that, to say the least, do not fit in with the rest of the community. Unfortunately, the home I linked to above, (which has dropped $100K by the way), sits on a cul-de-sac right near a brick McMansion monstrosity. Without community covenants restricting what types of homes can be built, I fear more of Freeman’s MCM homes will disappear.
