Intervale Avenue #2 - Second Floor

CURRENTLY RENTED

The second floor apartment in our Intervale Avenue house was our own home for three years. Although it is a one-bedroom apartment, we renovated it to work well for two people - there are separate sleeping and dressing areas, and the toilet is separate from the sink and the shower to make it easier to share the bathroom. We carefully maximized the square footage for comfort and convenience!

The apartment is bright and sunny and has wood floors and warm, cheerful colors on the walls.

Here are some of the other amenities:

  • Lots of bookshelves
  • Cozy (and energy-efficient) gas heater that looks like a woodstove with a real flame (really nice in the wintertime)
  • Gas stove (a bonus if you like to cook)
  • Dishwasher (a bonus if you don’t like to wash up)
  • Drying racks built right into kitchen cabinets to reduce work and maximize counter space
  • Walk-through clothes closet/dressing area
  • Two storage closets
  • Mini home office (in a converted closet)
  • Outdoor seating on a pretty front porch with lots of flowers
