Walking up to the fourth floor you are warmed with light through the marvelous skylight accenting the stairs, which leads to an additional three bedrooms on this floor plus a laundry room and a very large beautifully renovated bathroom with a claw-foot bathtub, and a rain-shower with a dramatic skylight.
The home’s ground/garden floor was designed for entertaining. The wonderful oversized rear room has been set up as an open family/media room ideal for indoor/outdoor entertaining.
