We love the urban lifestyle~the hustle and bustle of the seasons, the easy access to transportation, restaurants, theaters, museums, nightlife. But we also like a place to pull back, relax and reflect, to be casual and comfortable in a quiet place. This courtyard unit at theNational Condominiums is all that. Graced with oversized windows dressed handsomely in remote controlled pleated solar shades to allow flexible light throughout the day, the high ceilings and lofted wall attain a sense of breadth and space. An entry foyer introduces the unit and holds the coat closet and a utility cupboard. A spacious guest room with a large wall length closet swings to the side followed by a full bath with a glass enclosed tub-shower combo, ceramic tile flooring, wood and granite vanity with coordinating mirror.
