A brief stop in the foyer reveals elegant hardwood floors and a classic center stairway. Step right into the inviting Living Room where hardwood floors and an intricately detailed wood-burning fireplace make quite a statement while providing the perfect backdrop for entertaining family and friends. The adjoining sun filled Den is perfect for relaxing after a long day of work...Soak up the light streaming through the many large windows while you cozy up in front of the gas fireplace, enjoy the warmth that radiates from the heated floors throughout the room or simply gaze through the French doors to the spectacular view of the greenery in the backyard. Continue on and you'll reach the light filled Office with its built in cabinetry and equally stunning views of the
property—a perfect place to work from home.
Proceed to the open and airy kitchen where custom cabinetry and high-end appliances accented by fine granite counters and ceramic tile backsplash provide the ideal setting for the preparation of gourmet creations that can be easily enjoyed in the adjoining informal dining area, the adjacent spacious formal Dining Room or on the deck accessed through the large double French doors. Take two steps down to the Family Room featuring a rich looking built-in entertainment center, herringbone wood floors and a large gas-fired wood-burning fireplace. A conveniently located Powder Room, Laundry Room and Mud Room with additional storage and access to the garage complete the first level.

When its time to retire for the night, you'll proceed up the center staircase to the second level where everyone will find their own personal retreat. Luxury surrounds you in the Master Bedroom Suite with its elegant gas fireplace, walkout "Juliet" balcony, expansive custom walk-in closet and spa-like en suite bath.
