  • The grand opening was the weekend of April 27th, can you go into a bit of how this was for you both as the owners? How were you feeling, did it meet and exceed your expectations?

This week, we're pleased to offer you this top-drawer condo on the top floor of a beautifully rehabbed vintage former mixed-use building on Bainbridge Street in Bella Vista.
