Each feature was hand-selected by the sellers prior to project completion, which gives this particular unit a unique and personal taste. Convenient, yet stylish and sleek half bathroom located next to kitchen is perfect for entertaining. Walk the second flight of stairs and pass the stacked BOSCH washer/dryer. Bear left to enter the master bedroom equipped with fitted storage, a ceiling fan, and remote-controlled, custom shades. Bear right to enter the den or second sizable bedroom.
