Upstairs, the open plan dining and living room have access to the front balcony through a sliding glass door. A skylight provides this room with plenty of natural light. The galley-style kitchen and breakfast nook also have a skylight and access to a sundeck at the rear. Both front and rear sun decks are screened from their neighbours for privacy. The master suite is located at the rear of the house and has a three-piece en suite bathroom and a wall closet. Bedrooms two and three share a three-piece bathroom. A broom cupboard at the top of the stairs provides useful storage space. Simple roof lines make for straightforward construction and horizontal siding offers a low-maintenance finish.
