A wall of built-in cabinets ties into the breakfast nook and provides an abundance of additional storage space.
Just off of the living room sits a European-style full hall bathroom complete with 3form resin countertops, a Toto toilet, a pebble tile frameless glass shower with rain showerhead, and heated floors.
