Formal entry is accessible from a covered front patio into a foyer hallway that is accented by a wooden banister and railing that offset the sunken living room. Two-steps down separates the living room from the dining area as the open space is filled with natural light from the front bay window and rear picture window.

Hardwood flooring fills the living room and dining room and continues down the hallway to the bedroom wing and through French doors off the dining room into the secluded family room.

A brick fireplace fills one wall of the family room and has a raised brick hearth and stone mantle. French patio doors open from the family room to the covered patio and pool deck. A storage nook is built into a corner of the family room near the interior entrance to the three-car garage.
