The bedroom is on the main level and has a nook with double closets on either side. The upper level has exposed wooden ceiling beams, a series of narrow picture windows in the living room area, and an exposed brick wall. On the other side of the stairs, the dining area is adjacent to a U-shaped kitchen with breakfast bar peninsula.
