The covered front porch is framed with three columns, and steps back to give more privacy. After entering the foyer, a stairwell is to the right, and a pair of doors to a study is to the left. Beyond the foyer is an open living space, with a spacious kitchen to the left, and a dining room and living room to the right. A center island with counter seating separates the kitchen from the dining room, which has a 2' deep bay window for additional space. The family room has a gas fireplace at the end of the room, and a door to the screened porch beyond on either side of it. Next to the kitchen are a walk–in pantry, a half bath, a casual foyer room/mudroom, and a rear entry porch, which also has a door to the screened porch.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms with a shared full bath, and a master bedroom suite. A pair of doors leads to the master bedroom, which has a walk–in closet and a bath with both a shower and a tub.

The basement level has window wells along the two sides to bring in natural daylight to the main rooms. A family room is located in the center, and has doors to an exercise room, a third bedroom, a full bath, and a laundry room with access to a storage room and a utility room.
