You'd be hard-pressed to find a house with a jazzier entry foyer than this one's. Unfortunately, things aren't quite as groovy on the other side of the threshold as that colorful stained glass might lead one to hope: instead of terrazzo, there's icky beige floor tile; carpet where there should be cement slab; sad track lighting rather than sleek mid-mod sconces or globes; fugly countertops, cabinetry, and tile. And oh yeah, unless we're mistaken, one of the bathrooms has a toilet located inside the shower stall for some inexplicable reason. On the bright side, it's also got the proverbial "good bones," potential aplenty—and perhaps some cement slab hiding under that ugly rug.
