Sleek design and sustainability meet in the kitchen which boasts, stainless steel appliances, Grohe fixtures, an induction cooktop and custom concrete counter tops.

The quality of finishes and design intent are maintained on the second floor which features two bedrooms (one private and one lofted), custom closets, Bosch washer and dryer, and bathroom with shower stall.
