Upstairs, the owner's bedroom has a custom walk-in closet and a skylit en-suite bath with marble tiling, double vanity and tiled, framless glass shower stall. The second bedroom has a fireplace and built-in recessed shelving, sharing a full bath where a tiled-surround tub is built out of a tiled accent wall.
