Hello, I am trying to describe a city

X was located in a valley in the middle of huge mountain range. The population was a little more than eight hundred.

The houses ranged from old half-timbered houses to ultramodern glass and concrete houses with solar panels on the roof, with art nouveau homes from the early 19th century in between.

Thanks :)
