Newly renovated, detached garden apartment in quiet, leafy Wedgwood neighborhood. Separate, self-contained building with private entrance in completely fenced yard. Rose arbors, lush plantings, multiple seating areas include a cushioned glider, marble table for outdoor dining, reading nook, and a restful hammock. Our yard is a Certified Backyard Wildlife Habitat, so you may see lots of birds, including overwintering hummingbirds.
