Many of the homes here are surrounded by custom landscaping designs, too. Inside, houses in Cherokee Triangle are filled with all sorts of Victorian-era features. Many homes here still have hardwood floors, custom woodwork and stone details that date to the early 1900s, when the neighborhood was built. Some homes even have swimming pools, carriage houses and other incredible extras.
