PROS

A quiet, unique and open space, one of only seven apartments in the building. This the only one with a separate driveway entrance. The outdoor common space is lush and inviting. The carport can be converted back to interior space if desired.

CONS

The common fees fluctuate based on oil prices. There is no direct entryway from the outside for this particular unit. The bathroom fixtures don’t necessarily coordinate with the architectural style of the home.
