Artist/designer Julienne Van Vliet renovated this Carrollton gem, adding artful details like wood ceilings, exposing the beams in the kitchen and over the back patio, and a bathroom that's a work of art on its own: the walls have an abstract paint effect, and there's a rustic basin sink and a clawfoot tub with a pretty patina. The converted double still has its second door, which seems to be a pet peeve of readers here. Still unacceptable, or can you give this a pass? The asking price for the 1,400 square-foot two-bedroom, two-bathroom is $239,000.
