Buy a Wacky Mid-Century "Urban Tree House" in Franklin Hills


Franklin Hills, you hold so many odd little gems! The unusual shape of this 1963 house's roof creates some unexpected angles in the interior living spaces; the wood floors and built-in cabinetry give off a rustic feel, but the exposed beams on those high ceilings are almost futuristic. The only thing firmly rooted in the now in the 2,196-square-foot abode is the kitchen, which seems downright suburban with its newish appliances and "updated" cabinets. Per the listing, this unique three-bedroom, two-bathroom find is nestled into a tree-filled lot and comes with some stellar city and Observatory vistas, its own private "observation deck," an outdoor fireplace, built-in barbecue and "flagstone patios." The property is asking $1.225 million.
