Natural light streams through the large picture window and skylights of the double-height formal living room.

A wood burning fireplace, with a floor to ceiling brick surround, creates a focal point for this beautiful room. Built-in shelving to the right of the fireplace offers the perfect spot to display treasured collectibles and a seamless transition opens to the formal dining room perfect for effortless entertaining.
Dash over to nearby Wilson’s Farm for fresh produce and return home to create culinary delights in the bright and cheerful kitchen with granite counters, modern cabinetry, brushed nickel hardware, a tile backsplash, ceramic floor tiles, recessed lighting, an informal dining area, and a built-in microwave newly installed in 2018. A sunny window over the sink opens the home to even more light while offering delightful views of the front landscape and perennial gardens. A door from the kitchen offers easy access to the home’s two-car garage perfect for managing an active lifestyle. The garage is oversized with plenty of space for parking and storage.

Connect with the outdoors via the sliding glass door from the living room to the spacious deck where many summer days will be spent relaxing and entertaining while overlooking the private backyard.
