This four-bedroom home has classic architectural elements and details, such as flying gables, copper spires, wood corbels, and small paned glass windows. The interior is just as impressive, with high vaulted ceilings, and a barrel ceiling in the dining room.

As you approach this home, the glass windows that enclose a 23' high breakfast nook give you a glimpse of the interior space. After coming off the covered entry, you enter a foyer with a coat closet to the right. To the right of the foyer is a study/guest room with a full bath that has a second door that leads to the foyer for public use. Straight ahead is a spacious great room with vaulted ceilings. The high ceilings allow a large picture window above the rear glass doors, which give you views to the open veranda beyond. The great room is open to the kitchen, which features a walk–in pantry and a center work island, and a dining room, which features a barrel ceiling. The kitchen is open to the glass enclosed breakfast nook, which brings in sunshine and a variety of outdoor views. Next to the kitchen are a powder room, a laundry room, a mud hall to the garage, and a stairwell to the bonus room above the garage. To the right of the great room is a master bedroom suite, with a large bathroom and his/her walk–in closets. The roomy master bath features both a whirlpool tub and a shower. On the other side of the great room are two more bedrooms, which both open to a private full bath.

All the rooms in this dramatic home have high ceilings. In addition to the vaulted rooms mentioned above: the master bedroom has a 14'-6" ceiling; bedrooms 2 and 3 have 13' ceilings, as does the kitchen; and the foyer has a 14'-2" ceiling.

The room above the garage may be used as an office or a game room, and adds an additional 536 square feet. There is also a half bath located on this floor next to the stairwell.
