On the third floor are two large bedrooms, two small bedrooms (office, yoga room) and another full bath with yet another claw foot tub and a separate shower.
The finished basement with a full bathroom and a separate entry is a bonus additional living space that could function in several ways: a children's playroom, gym, or grown child's own apartment! There is tons of storage space, a bedroom, and a large laundry room.
