The unique brick home from 1915 was recently renovated, and now has refinished hardwood floors, new kitchen appliances and countertops, remodeled bathroom, new furnace system, and more. The three-bedroom unit also some great wood paneling, a coffered ceiling, and a fireplace. Private garage parking can be added for an additional $60.

The kitchen was also recently updated with new appliances and quartz countertops. On-site amenities include a fitness center, indoor pool and hot tub, and one parking spot.

This two-bedroom space on the 21st floor has an open floor plan with a connected living and dining room, and a galley kitchen separated by a partial wall. We’re not certain of the views, but they probably quite special.
