Located at 5000 Longmont Drive, unit No. 8 shows off its 1961 roots with a U-shaped layout centered around an atrium garden with water fountain. A recent renovation by Andreatos Construction combined with posh designer touches by award-winning Chandos Interiors sensitively bring the two-story residence up-to-date with refurbished wooden floors, exposed brick walls and new, insulated floor-to-ceiling windows offering views of the inner courtyard. The floor plan flows easily from formal living room to kitchen to formal dining room on the first floor.
The gourmet kitchen boasts two large islands with bar stool-seating at both and brand-new, state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances. A wine room is easily at hand, as it the informal breakfast room. From the kitchen, owners step out to a small yard perfect for outdoor cooking.
The spacious master suite sits off the kitchen, while the other two bedrooms with en suite baths are located on the second floor. In total, the condo offers three full and one half-baths.
In addition to the private atrium garden, owners enjoy even more privileges to outdoor living at the shared community pool. The condo is within close proximity of world-class shopping and dining at The Galleria, Uptown Park and the area.
