The double height foyer leads into the large living room, accentuated with a wood-burning fireplace, oversized windows, and a set of French doors. The eat-in kitchen has been updated with stainless steel appliances, custom cabinetry, and a wine cooler.
The first floor also plays host to an entertainment room equipped with a gas fireplace, a home office, an en-suite bedroom that is currently utilized as a fitness room, and a powder room. On the second level you’ll find a washer/dryer machine along with five en-suite bathrooms, one of which is the lovely master bedroom with sleek hardwood floors, cathedral ceilings, and two walk-in closets.
