The spacious open-floor plan on the top level allows for comfortable family living. The laundry area is on the same floor as the bedrooms. An office can be an additional bedroom.
The home’s unconventional layout, with general living areas on the top level and bedrooms on the floor below, may not appeal to all buyers. While the primary bathroom is large, much of it is unused floor area. The elevator needs repair and is not in use.
