Ceiling fans are on the first floor as well as in the bedrooms. There are two kitchens each with a gas stove and large refrigerator. The house has many windows and at Just BU Properties the window blinds are included so it isn't necessary to worry about window coverings.

The house has good sized bedrooms none of which are located in the basement. It does have a separate basement laundry room (free machines no coin-ops), and lots of storage. A surprising feature of this house is the large basement entertainment area with hardwood flooring an interesting built in bar with a sink and full sized refrigerator.
