It features floor to ceiling glass windows offering breathtaking views from three of the bedrooms, the great room and also the sun room. It has an open floor plan which is great for entertaining with fireplace; surround sound, dining area and pass thru kitchen.

The bedrooms are located in the more private section of the home and can be closed off from the rest of the living area. The main living space features gorgeous faux-marble 24″ x 24″ porcelain tiles while the private areas feature comfortable carpeting. This distinction helps to define the function of the two ends in the home. You will notice large skylights that illuminate the interior of the kitchen, utility room, and two of the 3 bathrooms.

Additional features are the two car garage and massive deck – perfect for large gatherings.
