The beautifully framed fortune-cookie fortunes will keep visitors lingering in the upstairs hallway, which connects the home’s bedrooms and leads from the main staircase to the back one. Heavy traffic never will be a problem in the expansive hallway that is lined with antique melon-jar glass lanterns. An elegant sofa provides a great resting spot at the top of the back staircase.
