This is at Laurel and Cherokee, close to Laurel Market. 32 condos, 1.75mm and up. Sales center in small house across the street for those with investment ideas.

That little house across the street deserves a better life. Was empty for a long time, surrounded by giant condos, gas station, etc. I'm saddened when I go to Laurel market and think that some day it will probably be torn down as it seems like a nice little home :( Those condos with their office has given it some new life with the paint job (and probably remodel) though.

Was a toy store for many years.  I want to say Black Forest Toys maybe??? Anyway, Amazon ended all that.

Edit... actually after looking at your pic again, I realize that the toy store was in the other cottage that still stands immediately to the left of this one, between this house and the gas station.  

Both are probably not long for this world.

The other house that was the toy store is now Isabella’s, a home furnishings store.  It’s a nice little operation.  Sad when/if that goes, but you’re probably right.

Black Forest was an amazing toy/kids bookstore.  I really enjoyed shopping there when my kids were little.

Trees can live indefinitely. Without pests, fire, drought, external disease (and man, sadly) they have indefinite life span. There are trees into our time that are in favorable locations and alive for thousands of years.

This tree (trees) is (are) on the grounds of Duke Mansion. At the motor entrance before the valet/parking area and close to the street. I walked around enough of the property yesterday to be confident this was the tree(s) Jane was describing. 300 years is pre-European settlement. John Lawson time.
