From the street, a wood garage matches the front door, that’s slightly set back, providing some protection from the elements.

Inside, the home doesn’t automatically open up to the living areas, instead there’s a small hallway with doors to the master bedroom and bathroom. These are located directly behind the garage.

The bedroom features rich wood walls and built-in bedside tables, and when combined with grey bedding gives off a luxurious feeling.
