Units range from one to three bedrooms, and 688 to 1,393 square feet. The 6,700-square-foot clubhouse offers luxurious amenity space, including media room, game room with shuffleboard and billiards next to a demonstration kitchen, as well as fitness rooms with gym and yoga studio. Outside, the resort-style pool is the centerpiece of the courtyard while the putting green, pergola lounge areas and cave with flat-screen TV provide outdoor entertainment.
