This magical house and garden on an extra-large corner lot was a highlight on the Bellaire Home Tour in 2005 and 2012. Now, the one-of-a-kind property at 4826 Palmetto is listed for $1,175,000.

The two-story 3,238-square-foot home with cupola and 659-square-foot quarters have been thoughtfully designed for views of the surrounding lush, diverse gardens.

Craftsman details are found throughout the comfortable living spaces, which include a den with fireplace, built-ins and view of a pergola-covered patio. There's a spacious chef's kitchen with expansive island; a dining room with lighted glass cabinets, three first-floor bedrooms and a luxurious second-floor master suite and sitting room with tree-top views.

The one-story quarters features a full bath, built-in library shelves, Italian marble floors and French doors that open onto a patio with small pond - an inviting space for guests, work or play.

The colorful garden has been planted and nurtured for 22 years and features 96 shade and flowering trees, antique roses, vines and ground covers, bulbs and perennials.
