The owner’s residence is a hidden oasis, filled with natural light and handsome custom appointments.

The top floor of the building has two apartments that are currently leased. These apartments were completely renovated circa 2013 with full permits to code.

In the words of the owner, "Y:ART is a contemporary gallery established in 2015 by Julia Yensho. It provides a forum for the art and culture of our time by presenting network and ideas through curatorial practice, artist representation, and by encouraging artistic collection. The gallery has been responsible for many important solo and group exhibitions that have launched and sustained the careers of featured local and regional artists. Public programming within the gallery consists of artist talks and expert lectures on current exhibitions. Y:ART's gallery store features over 90 local and regional artisans who specialize in handcrafted fine art gifts. This unique space is open for artist showings and workshops, and the gallery is also available as a venue for private functions or social gatherings."
