carport for parking, comes with monthly HOA dues of $495 and carries an asking

Situated near the back of the community, this unit features fantastic diamond patterned shadow block on the face of the home, accented by a pair of double doors and a flat-roofed canopy. Entering the residence, the living room faces north towards the swimming pool and common greenbelt area. Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors make up the entire north-facing wall of the living room, letting lots of natural light flow into the living area.

The entire home is floored in ceramic tile placed on a 45-degree angle to the walls, including both bedrooms. The secondary bedroom faces south and provides a floor-to-ceiling sliding glass door to the private patio, while the master bedroom faces north and overlooks the common area. Both bedrooms are generous in size and are separated by both the hall bath and the master bath. Both bathrooms still feature their original floating vanities topped with granite countertops and undermount sinks. Both bathrooms also feature walk in showers – the hall bathroom would have originally included a tub.
Outside the master bedroom the north-facing patio features a small planter with trellis-covered lightwell and decorative screen block giving privacy to the bedroom. Another neat feature of the north patio is that the sunflap fascia of the building is actually pulled back from the soffit by approximately one-foot, allowing additional light to flow into the patio area. This creates a pretty neat effect, and adds another layer of visual interest to the outdoor space.
