Mark's Preview Notes: I have always liked the Benton / Pomeroy townhomes.  This unit has an updated kitchen with granite tiles, but the older bathrooms could also use an update.  The dual patios (front and back) on these units and the design where no neighbors are looking into your space have always made these Eichler townhomes a comfortable place to call home.
