The foyer area has ample space for a bar and china cabinet and is situated next to your kitchen, which contains custom cabinetry and precast concrete countertops. A Bosch dishwasher and Sub-Zero refrigerator are concealed by wood paneling, and there is a custom built-in copper spice rack.

Beyond the dining area is the living room, an inviting space with abundant natural light from two exposures and a spacious seating area that overlooks your private garden. It also includes a wood burning fireplace featuring a custom hearth and mantle, to keep you warm on winter nights! To stay cool in the summer, the apartment features Mitsubishi Central air conditioning

brick patio, a basket-weave cedar fence, and an irrigation system to enhance the outdoor living experience.
A short hall off the living room gives access to the primary bathroom and both bedrooms.
