It offers historic charm and a modern cosmopolitan atmosphere that expresses itself in varied styles of homes. The selections include Victorian mansions, contemporary condos, quiet single homes and quaint apartments, all within easy reach of an exciting downtown business district that offers culture, shopping and entertainment.
