With approximately 8 ft tall ceilings, and exterior access to this amazing downstairs space, there are endless possibilities! Extending the full length of the home and measuring approximately 1,313 sq. ft. it is truly a blank canvas for the next owner to create what the heart desires; a rumpus room, guest space, artist studio, home gym or ADU.
