The adjacent dining area is beautifully fashioned with plenty of built in banquette seating with storage below and a nearby china cabinet. Two bedrooms adjoin the delightful and long hallway, filled with nooks and a skylit alcove in the center. The light filled Master Bedroom has an extra large and excellent closet and storage space behind mirrored closet doors. The cozy second bedroom has side by side closets and storage space. The expansive spa bathroom features warm marble-topped vanity cabinetry, a large warm marble enclosed whirlpool tub/shower area with imported fixtures, and a fully vented, stacked LG washer-dryer with storage cabinetry above. Opposite the tub/shower area are fantastic tall storage cabinet units with roll out drawers in one section for your towels and sheets.
Beautifully planned as is, this home's generous floor plan could comfortably accommodate a powder room if desired. Enjoy total serenity and comfort in this top-floor walk-up home. Video intercom entry adds safety and security.
