2 beds, 2 baths, 973 square feet. Year of construction: 1984.
At the time of this writing, this condo was available, but by evening it was already on hold.
Slide 5 of 19
Wood floors and lots of open space make this condo more spacious than expected. The added benefits of hardwood floors are easy cleaning and much less wear and tear in high traffic areas than with carpet.
Slide 6 of 19
Storage in the yard.
One of the likely reasons this condo is already on hold is the inclusion of a small yard as well as a storage shed. A common complaint that I have heard from people who live in apartments is the lack of storage space and the need to pay extra for storage space. Although it is not important, it is more useful than not.

Interior of the ground floor.
At 1,422 square feet, this condo has plenty of space for a small family, and the fact that it’s one story helps add a lot of architectural interest to the interior.

Of all the condos to date, this one makes the best use of layout and natural lighting to make this entryway comfortable and inviting.
Slide 12 of 19
This condo has a community pool, one of the reasons some retirees may choose to downsize. Pool maintenance is time consuming and expensive – the fact that it is one of the many amenities covered by an HOA may be worth it for some.

Slide 17 of 19
The interior is nicely decorated and well maintained, but it’s not the most exciting piece of equipment on offer. It’s when you step out into the backyard that you can see why the price is a bit higher than most.
Slide 18 of 19
A large outdoor courtyard with room for entertaining is always appreciated.
Slide 19 of 19
2 car garage.
The real winner is the 2 car garage. No more parking in an outdoor space and the reducers will be delighted to be able to pull out in peace.
