Just off the living room is a cozy dining nook and a private secondary bedroom - perfect for a child’s room or home office - also with a north facing window.

This lower level could function or serve multiple purposes: as kid’s playroom, entertainment floor/den, or even as a live/work usage as it has its own separate entry.
Unique to this condo property is that the 750sf rear yard is completely private and exclusive use of #1B . Accessed through sliding doors in the living room, one steps out onto a raised ceramic patio perfect for an outdoor dining table and grill.
