The kitchen is open to the bright, two story family room, which boasts windows galore and a show stopping floor to ceiling stone fireplace with reclaimed mantle and slate hearth.
On the other side of the family room, you will find a playroom that could also be used as a second office, yoga/workout room, or even a first floor bedroom. A powder room and a fantastic mud/laundry room with custom built-ins and utility sink, round out the first floor.

The pool features a hot tub, waterfall, and LED underwater lights. The entire back yard is fully fenced and the pool has its own fencing with self closing safety gates and locks.
