This existing three story property was renovated as a value improvement scheme. Using the surrounding context and rental precedents, a three unit layout was presented as optimal. Accessible from the street level, the owner's duplex has 2 bedrooms and 1.5 baths. The ground floor is living and kitchen space, with a large sliding glass door that creates an indoor-outdoor quality. A parlor level has two bedrooms and bathroom with washer/dryer. Separate tenant entrance at the stoop leads to the third and fourth floor one bedroom apartments.
