MIL apt has over 650 sq. ft. with 1 bedrm, a full kitchen, 3/4 bath, fireplace and a separate entrance. It's charming and bright, quiet and private, with many 50's knotty pine features. It's on the lower level of my house (daylight basement).
There's a large yard great for gardening with your separate patio area featuring a huge apple tree and kiwi arbor. The house backs onto a dead end street. No smoking, restrictions on fragrance and other chemicals used in body, cleaning and laundry products.
