P&L On the Market: 5209 Springlake Way

Palmer & Lamdin properties occasionally come on the market, but they're not always recognized as such, which I think is a mistake on the part of the realtor. For architectural aficionados, owning a P&L house is quite a coup.

This house sits perpendicular to the street on Springlake Way in Homeland, perhaps to take advantage of a narrow lot. From the realtor's description:
An amazing opportunity to live in a truly one-of-a-kind Homeland residence. This Palmer & Lamdin-designed home boasts the most magnificent details. Six levels of living space give this home a feel of grandeur.
A beautiful foyer with detailed paneling and mouldings opens to the most gracious living room with gorgeous hardwood floors,
a stunning wood-burning fireplace
and French doors which open to two patios.
To me, one of the most interesting things about this house, is how similar houses are variously described in early adverts for these.
Sometimes they are called Creole Cottages, sometimes Charleston-style houses, sometimes Southern Colonial, and sometimes Monterey style. Most of them are brick which has been painted white, and they all have upper and lower porches. This house was built in 1935 and has three bedrooms, and two full- and two half-baths. It overlooks the lakes in Homeland, as you can see below.

Here is the link to the real estate listing.
