First Floor
From the foyer off the large front stoop, the great room is on your left, the master bedroom is on your right, and the kitchen is straight ahead past the central stairway. The great room is quite large, and it features a fireplace at one end next to a bay window with a window seat. A door between this room and the dining room, and another between the dining room and the kitchen, lead to a large wrap–around covered porch. The kitchen is separated from the dining room by a breakfast bar, and it includes a pantry. Next to it are a half bath and a desk/computer nook. The laundry room sits behind the kitchen, and it's spacious enough to include a freezer, a place for coats and boots, and a back foyer leading to a back porch and the detached garage.

The master bedroom also has a fireplace, and a large walk–in closet. Views to the front match those in the great room, letting in lots of natural light during the day. The master bath has two separate sinks, and room for both a whirlpool tub and a large shower.

Second Floor
There are two good–sized bedrooms upstairs that share a full bath, and have access to both an insulated storage area and an uninsulated attic above the dining room.

Daylight Basement
The basement foundation was designed for 6 inches of stone on the exterior. The stone is designed to be flush with the wood framed walls above. The basement has a game room large enough for a pool table, and a fireplace of its own, as well as a bath, a sewing nook, and lots of storage.

The back porch links the house to the parking area, whether it is a detached or attached garage.
