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.
