Sometimes, it’s like working in an ice cream shop:  I so often want what I’m selling!  If I didn’t have an office space that I quite adore, this building would be absolutely perfect.  Go about business on the main floor, and live upstairs in a bright and stylish residence.  Or rent both of the suites until I need a little more space for business… this building provides space for growth.
