Each unit has its own private entrance hall, from which bedroom, bathroom or living room can be entered. Floors are carpeted from wall to "wall in living rooms, bedrooms and hallways, wtlh linoleum coverings in the kitchens and breakfast rooms, and tile in the baths. "The quality of the furniture and furnishings is excellent and of a, design and finish which will meet the eproval of the most fastidious.
