Why we love it: This home is, well, sexy. There, we said it. The tall windows draw the eye in, making passersby wish they had a reason to ring the doorbell and ask for a tour. And the facade’s most striking feature also serves a very functional purpose: “It has the handmade screen on the front to shade the top of the house,” the homeowner says. It’s a nice contrast to the downstairs floor. “We rarely ever have to turn a light on with all of the natural light,” she adds. The courtyard in the front is just one of the additions the homeowners made when they purchased it and moved from Kessler Park.
