AS ELEGANT AS THEY ARE utilitarian, these four-bedroom houses slip comfortably into the confines of their 45-foot-wide lots. Looney Ricks Kiss designed and detailed the exteriors to evoke the small-town scale of the early 20th century. Inside, though, is 2,824 square feet of flowing space befitting modern life. A formal dining/living room in front segues to a kitchen and double-height family room. A parallel one-story wing, recessed from the street, houses the master suite and alley-accessed garage.
