After entering the foyer, there's a room with optional doors on your left. This room can be used as a formal living room, a library, or an office, and a secondary door can easily be added to the back hall if desired, for additional access. After passing a stairwell on your left, you enter the large open living space. An open gallery separates the kitchen on the left from the formal dining room on the right, and boxed columns with dropped soffit ceilings visually separate the individual spaces.

A square island with a prep sink is located in the center of the kitchen. Straight ahead is the great room, with a decorative coffered beam ceiling. A fireplace at the end of the room warms the space, and a door walks out to a covered terrace. Full height windows next to the door look out to the terrace, and bring abundant sunlight into the room. From the kitchen, a hallway leads to a pantry, an office space, a powder room, a laundry room, and a two–car garage. A side door opens onto a side entry space, which leads to an additional one–car garage.

On the other side of the entry foyer is the master bedroom suite. The bedroom has a vaulted ceiling, and a glazed door with full height windows next to it looks out to the covered terrace at the rear. The large master bath features a whirlpool tub, a separate shower, a private toilet room, and two vanity sinks. The bath connects to the walk–in closet, which has a 'his' and a (larger) 'her' side.

After climbing the stairs to the upper level, you enter an open recreation room which has ceilings that slope up to a flat ceiling with a height of 14'–6". On one wall a door leads to attic storage, and on another wall there is a niche for built–ins. The central recreation room has a pair of doors that lead to a media room, which features a fireplace, and a vaulted ceiling with exposed wood beams. Bedrooms 2 and 3 both have walk–in closets, and they share a full bathroom, while bedroom 4 has its own sunny full bath with three windows that look out to the front.
