Sounds like these Villa Corona condos would be the perfect place for those working at Cal Tech or possibly an excellent investment opportunity for the parents of some students.

Fireplaces, in-unit laundry connections as well as a balcony or patio area all make Villa Corona very appealing to me, in addition to the one floor plan rather than a townhouse.

Good morning Michael. For the limited space to work with, the complex does a nice job to keep lots of plants growing and making it look bright.

Nice job with the report.
