Only the best building materials were used in construction and include wide plank hardwood floors, extensive custom millwork, top-of-the-line fixtures and finishes, Pella windows and an airy feeling thanks to the 10-foot ceilings.

Listing details: Drive up to the home on the circular driveway adjacent to the 3-car garage. Enter the home from one of two doors – one leading to a multi-purpose room, or from the other entrance into the foyer of the home. The foyer is graced with a gorgeous slate entryway and custom staircase. From the foyer, step ahead into the generous and airy living room – complete with gas fireplace surrounded by custom built-ins. From the living area, step into the open concept dining area flooded with light from the oversized windows. Right off of the dining area is an oversized kitchen with island and custom cabinetry from Paradise Custom Kitchens. Tucked behind the kitchen area is – surprise – another kitchen area – a chef or entertainer’s dream! Off of the kitchen hall is a convenient office space, a wood panelled den with fireplace and a hall that leads you back to the multi-purpose room and the rest of the first floor of the home. 

Listing details: Back to the foyer – the primary suite is off to the right. This stunning room has a fireplace, with custom built-ins, a beautiful marble bath and spacious walk-in closets. Heading upstairs, are 4 bedrooms – all ensuite. From this hall – head over to the spacious game room and office area, partially open to the “garage/entertaining” space below. Completing the first floor is a belvedere – a simply spectacular 2-story bar/fireplace area – makes you feel like you’re on vacation! From this space is a fully customized 3-bay “garage/entertaining” space that is outfitted to feel like a room – complete with two beautiful chandeliers. The Lower Level of this home is full of features such as a shoeshine station, work bench, and a secure room, with kitchen and full bath. A final feature is the antique brick floor on the side porch with a built-in gas grilling area. So much to consider – and no detail missed. *Property is also available for rental and would consider a rent-to-own scenario.
