A second spacious bedroom on the main floor adjoins a full bath that’s as luxurious in scale as it is in its finishes. The classic tile and fixtures in soothing colors make the bath a highlight, winning the owners’ hearts when they bought the house a decade ago.

The indoor-outdoor rapport is exemplified by the extra-large, level-out deck directly off the kitchen. Easy entertaining and front-to-back, sunrise-to sunset-living.

 

There is so much to enjoy in the rear yard, from grilling on the deck, to hosting al fresco brunch parties, to relaxing after dark with a nightcap, to watching the kids play. There is also space for gardening in the raised, terraced beds, and city vistas from the top of the yard.
