An ornamental iron gate mounted on molded brick piers serves as pedestrian access to six bungalows surrounding a grassy common. Typical of Southern California and of Pasadena in particular, bungalow courts are relatively uncommon in Virginia. The designer of College Court likely had seen Gustav Stickley's various publications or perhaps Henry Wilson's The Bungalow Magazine, for the individually detailed houses have the usual low-lying aspect, with extended eaves, brackets, beveled glass door panes, and a variety of porch columns and posts, some with an Oriental cast to them. The enclave is slated for restoration.
