Formal entry opens from the covered front porch into a foyer with an open staircase highlighted by two large windows. Oak hardwood flooring fills the foyer and continues throughout most of the main level, except the kitchen and family room.
Directly to the left, the formal living room has two sets of French doors with intricate woodwork design around the glass panes. Both sets open to the front covered porch. A decorative fireplace is the centerpiece to the room and is flanked by built-in display cases with glass-doors. A wood mantel stretches across the fireplace and below a window and a media nook.

Off the living room is the formal dining room, which is the center of the house as the four other socials areas are accessible from the dining room. It has crown molding and a ceiling medallion with crystal light fixtures.
Double doors open to a sun room or possible office. Ten windows fill the room with natural light and offer panoramic views of the landscaped yard. French doors are flanked by built-in bookcases and open to a side paver-brick patio.
Double pocket doors open from the dining room into a family room with two picture windows, patio doors that open to a rear side paver-brick patio and a single door that opens to the driveway. One whole wall has built-in cabinetry that surrounds a brick fireplace with raised hearth.
Ceramic-tile flooring flows into the eat-in kitchen, which is also accessible from the dining room and front foyer. White cabinetry fills three walls and extends to the ceiling. Ceramic-tile accents the wall space between the hanging cabinets and countertops. A window is above a double sink while another adds light to a counter space. Appliances include a gas range, dishwasher, microwave, and refrigerator.
