As a result, the home has been split up into 3 different zones, the formal areas, the informal areas and the alfresco areas. Stepping inside, you are welcomed by the formal living room with a fireplace on one side, and custom cabinetry on the other. There’s also a small balcony that looks out onto the street.

Behind the formal living room is the dining room that’s separated by a sideboard. The dining room sits next to large windows and a sliding door that leads out to the backyard.

In the kitchen, a black accent wall is broken up by the use of a single wood shelf that’s built into the wall and sits above the fridge. Wood stairs lead to the upper floor of the home.
