left to formal living and dining rooms. The hall continues past the
stairway to the large kitchen and breakfast nook which overlook the
deck and lawn beyond. Commanding its own wing, the dramatic great room
may be accessed from the kitchen or dining room and features a cathedral
ceiling, fireplace, and large windows to the front and rear. A mudroom/laundry
room, closet, and powder room sit off a rear hall, which offers convenient
access from the garage to the kitchen.

bedroom from the master bathroom which features a glass shower, a platform
tub, and dual vanities. A cased opening leads past additional closets
to a study above the garage.
