Everything’s been updated, from the laminate flooring in all 4 rooms, to the kitchen with its new cabinets, countertops, and appliances which come with the condo, the bathroom, and the bright, modern colors on the walls.
A parking space is reserved behind the building, which has controlled access after 7 p.m. The building also has a common laundry room, a lobby in the front, and plenty of storage space for all your extras.
