That’s open to the dining area and a newer kitchen with stainless appliances, granite counters, and a double-tier island with a gas range and a breakfast bar. A hallway leads past a bedroom and bath — with transom windows to let in extra light — to the master suite in back, where the bath holds a shower and a separate soaking tub. The unit has exclusive rights to the back patio; the basement offers bonus square footage for a playroom or an office.
