One need not be in the center of a bustling collection of pizzerias, coffee shops, hair salons, and restaurants to benefit — being just around the corner will do. And that’s where this condo, sandwiched in the middle of a three-unit multifamily, comes in.

Located a short walk from the JP Centre/South Main Streets business district, this unit offers other perks, including private decks in the front and back.

The renovation of this home was completed this year. The overhaul included new flooring: 5-inch-wide maple planks that brighten the rooms.

To the right of the entrance is a living area with three windows, crown molding, and recessed lighting. Sharing the open layout is a windowed dining area with a modern, clear-glass chandelier and room for a table for four.

The space ends at the kitchen, which offers high-end stainless-steel appliances, including a gas range, as well as white Shaker-style cabinets, quartz counters with a marble-like vein, and an island that fits up to four stools and has brown cabinetry. Doors here lead to the back deck.

Off the main living area is the first of two full baths. This one features a ceramic tile floor with radiant heat, a single vanity with white cabinetry and a quartz top, a tub/shower combo with a subway tile surround, and a stacked washer and dryer.

The first of the home’s two bedrooms comes with a big bonus: two closets. One is a traditional double-doored closet. The other is long and straight, like a bowling alley.

The master suite has a bedroom area with two windows and a deep walk-in closet behind a pocket door. The bath offers a shower with frameless-glass doors and a subway tile surround, as well as a single vanity with a white solid wood cabinet and a quartz counter. The ceramic tile floor has radiant heat.

The unit comes with storage in the basement.
