On the north end of the residence, two well-proportioned bedrooms gaze out over a lovely key-locked community garden. The master suite is highlighted by a sizeable private balcony, providing a peaceful escape perched above the oasis below. The bedroom also features a dressing room and an ensuite bath, equipped with a double sink vanity, standup shower, and poured concrete floor. Adjacent to the master bath is a second full bathroom.
