421 Harvard sits in a cozy seven unit complex surrounded by single family homes.  Unit D is the only one to have direct access from the street to its two car garage (the others share a common driveway), and is also the largest home of the seven.
Beautiful windows (all with blinds) let the light into the living room (left) and second bedroom (right).
This private courtyard belongs exclusively to Unit D, and is yours to enjoy as you like.  The plant beds were professionally constructed and installed in 2020, and are irrigated.
There is a lovely formal entry to this home including a coat closet.
Behind the closed door on the right is the third bedroom, and the stairs take you to the living room, kitchen, second bedroom and the first of two full baths.  Everything is light and neutral in this house, including the flooring (tile in the entry and wood on the stairs).
The first floor bedroom is also an ideal office, and includes a window looking out onto the common courtyard.
There is an ample closet in this room just outside the picture to the right.
The living room includes a fireplace and looks out onto tree lined Harvard St.
The living space more than comfortably accommodates ample seating, side and coffee tables.
When the current owners purchased the home in 2017 they invested in many improvements, including the fireplace remodel.
The living/dining/kitchen area is perfectly laid out, with great flow from one space to the next.
The dining space is generous and could readily accept a bigger dining set up if needed, or add a few stools to the breakfast bar.
The kitchen has so much cabinet and counter space.  New since 2017 are the dishwasher, garbage disposal and faucet (kitchen island is excluded from the sale).
The timeless herringbone backsplash (added by the current owners) adds an elegant touch to this very functional and open kitchen.
Just behind the living room and adjacent to the kitchen is the second bedroom, currently with a king bed.  The open door to the back and left of the photo is to a full bath (also accessible from the hall/kitchen).
This bedroom looks out on Harvard St. and the crepe myrtle trees in the unit's private courtyard, and includes a double door closet.
The second full bath attached to the second/guest bedroom has a wide vanity and tub/shower combo.
The private primary retreat on the third level includes hardwood floors installed by the current owners (was previously carpet), and a cathedral ceiling.
A neutral palette truly runs throughout this light filled home.
The stunning primary bath with a dual bowl vanity was updated in 2019 including marble floors, new lighting and new tile.
In addition to a jetted tub, the oversized frame-less glass shower stall has a bench and dual shower heads.  The closed door leads to a storage closet perfect for luggage and other non-clothes items.
This primary walk-in closet will not disappoint, with exceptional hanging and shelf space.
Back to the first level, the washer and dryer are in the house (the door leads to the garage).
The common fenced courtyard shaded by a mature live oak is landscaped and meticulously kept for all owners to enjoy!
