Lightbulb Find the 2 points r units away from two lines

I have two lines defined by two points each (P1, P2, P3, P4).
I'd like to find the 2 points that are distanced r units from both lines.

I found a way, but I think it's too long and maybe there's one shorter.
= r

= r
(in the second image, replace P1 -> P3 and P2 -> P4)

I'd like to have the solution not the system.
