Hide CaptionShow CaptionWith all new matching furnishings, the adult side of the basement exudes a contemporary, yet cozy, ambiance.
The castle and soccer field on the kid side of the basement invites kids of all ages to play. Lots of stylish storage has been built into the basement to hide toys after playtime is over.
