Two separate bedroom wings provide privacy and give your guests space to spread out.
Everywhere you turn, thoughtful design choices abound. Concrete ceilings and supports create an industrial feel that is tempered by the home’s warm creamy tones and whimsical touches. The gorgeous and up-to-date kitchen features sleek counter-to-ceiling cabinets to maximize storage, while stainless fixtures, granite counters, and ample counter space make it easy to host a crowd. The charmingly whimsical dining room chandelier uses vintage-style Mason jars around each of its hanging bulbs, while the laundry closet is subtly tucked away off the left-hand bedroom’s vestibule. The owner’s spacious en-suite bath boasts a level-in shower and walk-in closet. This home smartly anticipates your every need.
