Built-ins, a Gazebo and a Pool in the Palisades

Over in the Palisades, an entry vestibule gives this 19th-century farmhouse the illusion of an extended living room, which also houses a white fireplace protruding from the wall. One bedroom on the second level has a sitting room and an en-suite bath with double sink. The second bedroom has floating built-in shelving and access to a private balcony. The next landing up has a series of oversized windows cradled by a 90 degree-angled built-in bench. Two bedrooms on this level both have cove ceilings and share a full bath with a bubble skylight. A lower level rec room has a fireplace, plus glass french doors out to the backyard, which has a pool deck and an octagonal gazebo.

Two Stairs and a Green-Roofed Garage in Lanier Heights

The exterior of this semi-detached Victorian has a personality typical of the  Lanier Heights neighborhood, with a bay window centered above a columned front porch. The entry vestibule has tiled floors and exposed brick, with the latter material lining both walls in the open living area. Beyond a stair centered on the main level, the formal dining room has a subtle bay and a decorative fireplace with tiled surround and a wooden mantle with built-in mirror. The ultra-contemporary kitchen is finished in shades of white, and has a pressed tin ceiling and a door that leads to the deck and the garden-like backyard. On the second level, one bedroom has a bay window, another has curved walls, and a third has access to a private balcony. The owner's bedroom on the uppermost floor has a double-height vaulted ceiling and a trio of windows. The house also has an unfinished basement with separate entrance and a detached garage with a green roof.
