Mr. Rhodes specializes in high-end residential design and unique properties. A summary of the home's qualities is a rather extensive list.

With so much specialty work in this home, you really should plan a visit to see the space for yourself. During your visit, please take a moment to notice how incredibly quiet the spaces are. This is due to the sound reducing windows and solid concrete floor construction; all to help remove you from unneeded distractions.From the garden level, you have a separate entry with waiting/mud room. This space is currently configured as a private office with another interior stair accessing the rest of the home. This floor has two bedrooms, plus a front office with other interior utility rooms.

Again, excellent natural light and space are prevailing features in the design of this floor.On the third floor, two bedroom walls were removed to create a massive Children's Floor with large play area and large bedroom. Here the architect's intentions are clear about bringing abundant natural light deep into the spaces. This floor has a Jack and Jill double-sink bathroom with beautifully tiled shower and tub areas, an upper level laundry room, ample closet space, and the possibility of making additional rooms by simply replacing walls.To cap it all off you have a magnificent roof deck, with almost 360 degrees of unobstructed views.
