$32,600 Above Asking for 300 Square Feet

The condo has an extremely efficient and multi-functional layout, with a generous amount of counter space beneath floating cabinets forming a "T" with the kitchen with combination washer/dryer on one side and a a breakfast bar and adjacent bar area on the other. A pair of sliding frosted doors conceal the custom closet on one side, and a wall panel conceals sits a Murphy bed on the opposite wall. The living area also has a corner fireplace.
