Through a wide doorway is a dining room with more hardwood flooring and windows looking out to the front and side yards. This space connects to a galley kitchen with white cabinetry, a black farmhouse-style sink and stainless steel appliances, including a gas range. A pantry with access to the back patio is off the kitchen.
