In general, “sunny” can be relied upon to be real-estate code for “this place is dumpy but at least there are windows!” That is not the case with this Bella Vista row home owned by Haviv David, founder of Mama’s Vegetarian restaurant. Between the central skylight showering light throughout all three floors and the glassed-in sunroom, this home is sun-filled in the best sense of the term.
The entryway to the home is custom-made concrete and tile, leading to a first floor that includes a laundry room and powder room in addition to living room and kitchen. The kitchen is finished with a five-burner Napoleon ventless stove as well as an LG dishwasher, and a Jenn-Air refrigerator.
Off the kitchen is a sunroom (which doubles as a dining room) that is completely made of glass. The room is protected by motorized shades and overlooks a brick patio and garden. Upstairs there is an en-suite master as well as a dressing room with custom built-in shelves that can be used as a guest room.
Out back the garden features several trees and other plantings. The home is also around the corner from the Seger dog park.
