The dining room is located directly off the updated kitchen which features all top-end appliances and custom French Provencal tile work by a local artist. The Bosch gas cooktop and convection oven make preparing meals a breeze that can then be enjoyed in the bay window breakfast nook or out on your flagstone patio. The second floor leads to the generously sized main suite with his and her closets, a full bath, and a covered porch overlooking the immaculately landscaped grounds and a side yard big enough to have a soccer scrimmage.

The basement level is semi-finished with carpeting, built-in cabinets and desk, a half bath, and an exit to the side yard.
