The house sits on a half-acre lot with a dry creek bed, several flowering trees, a pergola that covers part of the deck, paver patio and walkways and a two-car insulated garage with added storage.

Formal entry opens into a two-story foyer with an open wood staircase with carpet runner and hardwood floors that fill the majority of the main level. French doors to the right open into a study. To the left is access to the formal areas, which include the living room and dining room. Both rooms have bay bump-out windows while the dining room has a tray ceiling that frames a painted art.

Access to the kitchen is available from the foyer hallway and is off the dining room. The kitchen has hickory cabinetry, including a pantry as well as a pantry closet. An angled island has seating and additional storage. Appliances include a gas cooktop and wall ovens. A double sink is below a two-level peninsula counter that divides the kitchen from the morning room, which has a cathedral ceiling. Several windows provide natural light into the morning room, and a single door opens to the rear deck and landscaped back yard.

The great room has high ceilings and six windows with transoms above. A stone, gas fireplace has a raised hearth and wood-beam mantel. A laundry room with wash tub and garage access is off the great room, and a half bathroom has been updated with a bowl sink on a vanity with stone wall accents.
