Business upstairs and party downstairs. The Quincy Rambler by Heritage Homes definitely knows how to keep it fun. With an open concept main floor and flexible use lower level, this home utilizes every square inch to its highest potential.

The main floor’s open living concept makes it a highly functional space. The living space is adorned with clean white detailing and exposed beams for a modern chic feel. But downstairs is where the fun really begins.
