This is a spacious 700 sq. foot studio apartment. While it shares a common entrance to the house, the suite’s entry door locks securely for complete privacy. Our publishing company occupies the space adjacent to the suite and there is very little activity on the evenings and weekend.
Overhead skylights provide excellent light. Soft carpeting adds to the comfort. The private bathroom includes a large shower and double sinks. Sleeping arrangements included a comfortable Queen size mattress on a low (3") platform and a queen-size sofa bed. Behind the sleeping area there is a semi-private room with a queen-size futon.
Fast Wi-Fi connection. In-house entertainment includes Cable TV with HBO and On Demand service, and DVD player. There are weights and exercise props. In the sitting room there is a small refrigerator/freezer, microwave, dishes and utensils.
Parking is easy either in the large driveway or on the street. The large garden is peaceful with unusual plants and a large fish pond.
