One enters the house off the entry deck, into the foyer. To the left is a staircase to the upstairs bedroom suite, and to the right is the main living space. A central stone hearth sits at one corner of the living space, and there are doors to the eight–sided screened porch. The room is open to the dining room and kitchen, with a beam above distinguishing the two spaces. The living and dining room ceiling is vaulted, while the kitchen feels a bit more intimate with a high flat ceiling. On the other side of the kitchen is another screened porch, which is accessed through the main hallway. On the other side of the hallway are a bedroom, a spacious full bath, and a laundry room. The laundry room is large enough to fit a bench and closet, and is connected to the garage, which makes it convenient when entering the house from the garage.

The second level is devoted to a master bedroom suite, with a generous sized bath which features both a shower and a tub. There are steps down to a large sized exercise room, which may be used as an office, library, or additional bedroom if needed. Its floor level is able to sink a few feet lower than the bedroom floor, because it is located above the garage space. The garage floor slab is slightly lower than the main floor level.

The partial basement has a recreation room, mechanical room, and two potential bedrooms with a full bath if desired.
