Coming off the covered front entry porch, you enter a foyer space with a two–story ceiling that is over 23' in height! An open curved stairwell with a decorative wrought iron railing is located to the left, and to the right an arched opening framed with large round columns leads to a formal dining room with a ceiling that coves from 12' to 13'. The dining room has another small arched opening to a butlery as well as a wine cellar. Large side–by–side arched windows in the dining room look out to the front, providing abundant views and natural light.

Straight ahead from the foyer space is an open living room that also has a two–story ceiling. Two huge arched picture windows that rise almost to the 23' ceiling are set between three thick columns and look out to the center courtyard. To the right of the living room, two arched openings lead to a large den space with a tray ceiling that reaches 11'. A center fireplace flanked by built–ins warms the room. Windows look out to a side covered patio space, and an arched opening in one corner leads to the kitchen and breakfast nook.

The open kitchen has plenty of space for the gourmet chef, including space for an oversized center island with a sink and an extended counter for eating. The kitchen features a large walk–in pantry, a niche that accommodates a 6'–wide refrigerator/freezer, a tremendous amount of counter space, and an arched window above the sinks that looks out to the front of the house. A glazed door in the breakfast nook walks out to a covered side patio with a fireplace in one corner for cooler weather, fans located on the 14'–high ceiling for warmer weather, and an open colonnade with arched openings that frame the surrounding outdoor views. Another opening in the kitchen accesses a small hall that leads to a powder room, a hobby room, and a stairwell to a lower basement room, if you choose to build this out.

From the den, a small vestibule leads to another powder room, the enclosed courtyard, and the master suite. The master bedroom has a decorative tray ceiling that's 11'–high in the center, and a sitting area with a beautiful curved bay window that's separated from the bedroom by an arched opening that spans the entire width. Columns at either end of the arched opening further delineate and detail the spaces. A glazed door on the opposite side of the bedroom opens out to a covered patio space with three columns separating it from the center courtyard. Next to it, another pair of doors open to the huge master bath. The bath area features two separate vanity counters and sinks, an oversized shower, a separate tub, a private toilet room with a bidet, and niches for built–ins or furniture. A pair of doors from the bath open into an extra–large walk–in closet. From the closet, doors open to a private safe room and to a utility/laundry room. The laundry room also has a door that accesses the exterior courtyard.

Returning to the foyer space, on the left there is an optional elevator as well as a coat closet. Across from them a pair of doors open into an impressive library. The library features a box beam ceiling with wood beams, and a fireplace hearth that's surrounded by built–ins. Three windows bring in light that reflects off the beautiful wood used throughout the room and ceiling. A hallway leads past the library to a guest suite with a full bath and a tray ceiling with exposed wood beams that slopes from 10' at the sides to 12' in the center. The hallway has a decorative ceiling with groin vaults that rise from 10' to 11'8". It also accesses a second utility/laundry room, and a four–car garage. A door in the center of the garage provides direct access to the enclosed courtyard area.

On the other side of the garage there is an open exercise room with a full bath, room for a kitchenette and a future sauna, and a cabana/lounge space. Another storage room is located by this space.

At the top of the stairs to the upper level, a small curved balcony looks down to the living room below. A game room with plenty of storage room and an outdoor balcony is located right next to the stairwell. Farther down the hall, bedrooms 3 and 4 are located across from each other. Both rooms have their own full baths, walk–in closets, and outdoor balconies. Bedroom 4 shares the L–shaped balcony with the game room, and its bath has two additional doors that open from the game room and the hallway. At the end of the hall, double doors open to a large theater room with a snack room and bar for food and drink.
