Upon entering the home, you find yourself in a foyer which brings you to an open living space with vaulted ceilings and exposed wood beams. A long clerestory window raises the ceiling even higher, bringing in natural light from above, and providing venting windows for cooling. From the living spaces there are views to a stairwell and to a balcony above, and a glimpse of the upper loft. The living room has a wood stove on a stone hearth to heat the home during cooler seasons, and a powder room is located next to the stairwell. The kitchen has skylights above for additional natural light, and a center island that separates it from the open living and dining areas. A door from the living room opens into the master suite, which has a vaulted ceiling as well. The master bedroom has sliding glass doors that open onto a rear terrace, which also can be accessed from the living room. The master bath/dressing area has a vaulted ceiling with a skylight, and features two closets, a vanity with two sinks, and a whirlpool tub that sits below a window. A separate room next to it accommodates a toilet and a shower.

The upper loft was used as a study loft, and is open to the living space below. The windows at either end of the room provide outdoor views, and additional sunlight.

The lower level has a cozy family room that has sliding glass doors to a rear patio, and a separate room for a den. On this level, there are two more bedrooms, a full bath, a large pantry, and a laundry/utility room.
