It's probably a harbinger of solid structural design and longevity when the person who renovates and expands a home is the architect who lives there. Such is this case with this artfully modified 1923 bungalow in Decatur, asking $599,000. Perks include a roomy five bedrooms, a marble-heavy kitchen, spa tub and that inviting, fenced backyard. Clean lines and beautiful wood abounds. One knock: The city's thriving downtown dining/drinking scene is a fair hike away.
