There’s a convenient ½ bath off of the living room that was renovated in 2019.


Down a small hallway flanked by “8 over 12” windows, you’ll pass a coat/pantry closet on your way to the dining room and kitchen. The open concept kitchen has granite countertops with an overhang for additional counter seating and undercabinet lighting. The stainless-steel appliance suite includes an LG refrigerator (2019) with a bottom freezer drawer, Bosch dishwasher (2015), Whirlpool electric range (next to a gas line; possible to convert to a gas stove) and microwave.
