After entering the house from the covered front porch, you enter a foyer space with a coat closet and views to an open living space. To the right there is a door to a study or an office.The open living area, which has a stairwell, a space for dining, and a fireplace, has windows and glazed doors at the rear, which bring in sunlight and views. The room is open to the kitchen, which has a breakfast bar that separates it from the family room, a pantry, and an eating area. Next to the study, there is a small hall that leads to a full bathroom and a two–car garage.

After going upstairs, the upper floor landing is open and spacious, and can be used as a sitting area. Sliding glass doors open onto a balcony, and a spiral staircase leads to the third floor observatory room. The observatory room has windows along all four walls, and sliding glass doors that open onto a long roof deck.

The second floor has a full bath, a laundry closet, two bedrooms, and an octagon shaped Master suite with an office area. A private deck wraps around the Master bedroom, and the octagon shape allows multiple views in different directions, as well as a unique vaulted ceiling. The Master bedroom also features two walk–in closets, a two–sided fireplace that is open to the Master bath, and a spacious bathroom with both a large shower and a separate tub.

The Basement level has a family room, a workout area, a full bath, and a mechanical/storage room
