Some kind of nutter wonderful, we should add. First, there are gold frames around every photo on the MLS. And add up the strange landscaping, the red walls, those tall doorways--all you need is a pill and you're down the rabbit hole. Or, rather you're in Il Villino, a two-bedroom, three bath designed by local architect Bob Ray Offenhauser. Via the listing, more about 543 Columbia Street: "Through wrought iron and wooden gates and perfectly manicured meandering gardens you will enter a magnificently private and elegant paradise, secluded behind high walls...Several skylights illuminate the house.
