A flagstone walkway welcomes you to a tasteful wooden front door at the main entrance. Upon entry there is a vast two-story foyer that showcases the extensive open layout and exquisite millwork throughout the main floor, transitional architecture, and decorous finishes that combine established design and modern amenities. Directly off the foyer to the left sits a bright and airy living room adorned with a brand new wood-burning stone surround fireplace and a classic wooden mantle, handsome chair railing and crown molding, artistic hardwood flooring, and recessed lighting.

A cozy breakfast area with direct access to the rear patio completes the kitchen.

The main floor is finished with a private office space, a full tiled bathroom with a glass stall shower and a stone floored mudroom that leads to the attached two-car garage.
