The main level offers the ideal layout for entertaining, with ceiling heights upwards of 13 ft, and floor to ceiling windows. The harmonic proportions of the open concept living with a gas fireplace, and dining areas are expansive and yet artfully connected.
A floating steal staircase filled with natural light via a skylight, leads to two large bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and a mid-level laundry room. The opulent master level with 10 ft high ceilings, a lush ensuite, oversized marble shower, and custom vanity is impressive.
