The side-by-side living and family rooms both have pentagonal shapes and the latter also has an angled brick fireplace. The upstairs landing creates a reading nook and hosts the laundry room and three bedrooms sharing a full bath. Two of the bedrooms follow the pentagonal footprint of the rooms below and the third has access to a private balcony. The uppermost level serves as the spacious owner's suite beneath a cove and pitched ceiling, featuring an exposed brick column, built-in window seat, and walk-in closet. The spacious lot also has a two-car detached garage.
