The house is on a downhill slope with the two bedroom rental house on the upper level which is the street level. There are a few small steps up into the house from the walkway. I live on the lower level which I access down the driveway and around the rear of the house. There are no shared interior spaces or entries so you will have privacy.
This is a pet-friendly house that has a secure outdoor deck area. Dogs may be permitted with advance arrangements. No cats please.
