The home also has lots of skylights throughout, which really opens it up and would likely make it feel larger. It is 1,540 square feet. The bedrooms and bathrooms look pretty big as well. What do you think about the layout and size of the home in regards to the price? It seems like it is a nice area to live in. It was previously sold in 2009 for $620,000.
