Additional commentary.
1. Santa Cruz Historic Building Survey, Volume I, 1976, Page 106
”260 High, Piedmont Court/Calreta Court, Mission Revival, 1912, William Bray
A very fine Mission Revival apartment house that is open to the weather and the view at every opportunity. There are high square towers at the corners with open floors under tiled hip roofs, and open terraces in between the towers. The interior court and iron and stucco balconies give almost every room an outdoor experience.
[Architectural Significance as an Example of its Style:] Exceptional
