The dramatic foyer, graced by a custom inlayed tile floor and a hardwood staircase to an upper balcony overlook, is flanked by the formal living and dining rooms. All share brilliant cherry hardwoods, high ceilings, enhanced architectural trim, arched doorways, recessing lighting and fresh paint. The dining room is a gracious entertainment space with easy guest service from a butler’s-style buffet counter. Through the living room we find the calming retreat of a sunny Florida room and an adjacent library with glass French doors for privacy. Take the party outside to the generous tiered sun deck, plenty of room for al fresco dining while others spread out to enjoy the view.

At the heart of it all, the distinctive kitchen and breakfast room offer a functional balance of beauty, comfort and convenience. A large tiered center island features a cook top and is surrounded by ample cabinetry, granite counters, a handy ‘wrapped’ buffet counter, wall cabinets and an open butler’s pantry. Enjoy casual dining in the breakfast area set in front of a French door or sit with family and friends in the big comfortable family room finished in gleaming cherry hardwoods and a gas fireplace flanked by windows.

Our tour continues as we ascend the stairs to the upper level. The resplendent and soothing master suite enjoys a large bed area, sitting room, deep walk-in closet with built-ins and an en-suite bath. Luxuriate in the deep soaking tub set in a windowed nook conveniently next to a corner shower and across from two separate sink vanities. Always dreaming of a Hollywood-style dressing room? The sitting room could easily be re-purposed! The upper level also boasts four secondary bedrooms and adjoining en-suite baths. Bedroom two and three have their own, bedrooms four and five share a Jack-n-Jill style bath with double sink vanity and a private tub/commode area. Four baths up for much easier mornings!

The finished walk-up lower level is designed for ultimate entertaining overflow. Full of open recreation flex areas for gaming, fitness and media/TV. Get cozy around the gas fireplace while enjoying treats from the refreshment bar which includes a mini-fridge, sink and wine rack/cabinets. An over-sized den with a double closet is perfect for over-night guests and offers access to a full tub bath. A three-bay side-load garage has bonus vehicle storage, plus the extra-wide driveway gives plenty of room for overflow parking. Be sure to walk this unique one-acre property with an upper yard hugged by dense trees.
