Description

The front entryway at ground level sits beneath a small balcony of the sitting room in the master suite. Upon entering the foyer, there is a room to the right that could serve several purposes. While described on the plans as the "study", it would make a great space for entertainment (with its built–in wet bar and refrigerator), a den (with a fireplace and a patio), or a guest room or in–law suite.

Straight ahead from the foyer is a curving stairwell to the upper level, and access to the other rooms on the lower level. There are two bedrooms here in addition to the "study", each with its own full bath. Bedroom 3 features a laundry room in the bathroom, and Bedroom 4 looks and walks out to a screened room. A two–car garage with side entry is located on this level, as is the mechanical room, and there is room for an optional elevator that the original homeowners planned to install in the future.

At the top of the stairs, there is a door to Bedroom 2's full bath straight ahead, with the kitchen on your right and the great room on your left. The great room features a cathedral ceiling, a centrally–located fireplace, and a long wall of windows and a pair of glazed doors that look out to the porch and the view beyond. It also has built–ins and a wet bar along the wall shared with the master bedroom, and built–in window seats with storage below flanking the fireplace. The kitchen is quite spacious, and full of light from two skylights in the ceiling. The large center island has built–in warming and freezing drawers, a microwave, and an ice–maker. Next to it is a light–filled breakfast area with double doors leading to the porch.

The master suite features a large bedroom with built–ins and shelving flanking the bed and views to the front and side, a sitting room with its own balcony and separate vanity that accesses a large walk–in closet, a private toilet, and the master bath. And the bathroom has a Jacuzzi tub, a separate shower, and a second walk–in closet. Another bedroom with a full bath is located on this level, which has its own private balcony. The ceilings on both levels are a dramatic 10'.

Please Note:
The exterior of this house looks mottled in the photographs because the surface had not dried completely yet.
