Looking to entertain? In addition to the kitchen and great room, an oversized formal dining room with an elegant crystal chandelier has plenty of room for your guests or relax in the living room by the fireplace or open one of the French doors and spend some time in the bright solarium enjoying the perfect views that this property offers. Upstairs, the owner's suite features a gas fireplace as well as a separate dressing room plus 5 additional bedrooms on the second and third floors. There is a separate suite (perfect for an au pair suite or home office) located on the second floor of the addition with large great room, separate bedroom, full bath and loads of storage.
