Spacious, open and bright with 1646 square feet of living space, including 2 car garage and laundry room with washer and dryer and half bath. The covered front porch is cozy and inviting. Inside the windowed front door you will find a traditional foyer with an additional window and coat closet. This receiving area can be closed off behind two swinging doors if desired. As you enter the living space you will feel the openness of the large, bright floor plan. Although there are windows on every wall, the home still feels private due to the mature trees surrounding the home. Beyond the Living room and accessible through the formal dining room is a huge wood paneled family room with floor to ceiling windows along the west wall and a pass-through opening to the kitchen for entertaining.

The bathrooms each have windows and custom wood shutters for privacy. Between the private half baths and accessible from each bedroom through private doors is a tub and shower which is shared between the two bedrooms. Bedroom two is entered though its own private hallway with additional hall closet and this entire area can be closed off from the rest of the house, resulting in a "private-wing" .
