In the home’s renovated windowed cellar is a lovely artist’s studio whose high ceilings, bright walls and poured concrete floors definitely inspire creativity. There is another small outdoor area here, along with plenty of storage. This space would also make a great home office, nanny or guest suite. Also down here is a laundry room, with space and plumbing for the addition of an additional bath.
