Located 10 steps down from the house's ground floor lobby, this spacious studio apartment has its own private foyer.

Three overhead light fixtures located in the large entry foyer and a table lamp are in keeping with the Mission Arts & Crafts movement. The spacious studio apartment features a queen size solid cherry wood handcrafted Mission style bed. A large beveled mirror framed in pine is centered behind the headboard on the chimney wall. A comfortable traditional club style loveseat converts to a twin bed. A twin folding bed that may be placed anywhere in the room, is available and stored in the storage space within this room.

Two beautiful archways divide the Mission studio into separate area of the room.
