Homes by Gerbus welcomes you home to The Monroe, a five-story urban style home with four levels of finished living space! An elevator from top to bottom makes it easy to go from watching movies or working out in the lower level to preparing a decadent dinner in the gourmet kitchen to relaxing and entertaining on the rooftop terrace. Designed and built with inspired living in mind, the main level is home to the primary living areas including a modern chef’s kitchen, family room, dining area, and outdoor living space. Bedrooms, including the primary bedroom suite, are located on the upper level and the rooftop level is dedicated to entertaining!
