An end-unit means extra windows which means extra light and this unit borders undeveloped area so you have the feeling of privacy. You don't look at the next unit, but instead have a nice tree view. The electric baseboard heating system has been replaced with a gas forced air heating system. The Jenn-Aire cooktop in the kitchen is also a big plus. There is a huge area underneath which includes tons of storage capability, or could maybe even be finished off for an additional room.
