The living room includes hardwood floors, a comfortable couch that can double as a bed if necessary, and a wall-mounted television.
In the corner of the room, there's a cheerful dining room table, and in the center, a winding black staircase that leads to the master bedroom. A green accent wall adds a pop of color and stands out against the white interior of the home.
As you go up the staircase you'll see custom-built wooden landings that provide space for books or other knick knacks.
Take a closer look at the cool shelves along the staircase, perfect for books.
Upstairs, the master bedroom includes a double bed and oversized wooden wardrobe for clothing storage. The peaceful sleeping nook features wooden blinds, a sleek, modern chair, and a mirror on the wall.
Imagine opening the blinds to this view every morning!​
The bathroom, located downstairs, offers a stand up shower, sink, and toilet. Though the space is limited, the room provides everything necessary. The container home is also equipped with hot water, heat, and electricity.
Plenty of storage space gives the bathroom added appeal, and its bright, white color scheme feels crisp and clean.
The gourmet kitchen dazzles with stainless steel, modern appliances, steel and wooden countertops, and overhead shelving. The kitchen includes a dishwasher, built-in butcher block, refrigerator, microwave, sink, and an oven with a range.
Opposite the sink and oven, there's a small, eat-in area with bar stools. Oversized glass doors offer plenty of gorgeous sunlight and lead you to the outside terrace for meals al fresco.
As you step outside, you'll notice the gorgeous view, along with a table for four, a barbecue grill, and a beautiful wading pool. It's the perfect place to end a busy day sightseeing in the city.
There's even a spot to park your bike!​
What this home is missing in size, it definitely makes up for in style, beauty, and sheer design. Just the pool alone makes the home such a treat!
