Some of the units have their master bedroom on the first level with two other bedrooms on the upper level. The upper hallways of each unit overlook the living room with cathedral ceilings. All of the units contain skylights which makes them bright and airy, and all have decks on each level bringing the outside in. The floating staircases also add to the feeling of spaciousness in each of the units. The lowest level in most of the units is a fully finished walk out family room, many with stone fireplace that also adds to the feeling of luxury that abounds in these town homes. Each unit has a private rear lawn with barbecuing permitted and a two car garage.
