Straight off the foyer, the great room is separated by column accents and flooring treatment. A gas fireplace has stone surround and a wood-beam mantel and a wood hearth. Tall windows with transoms above flank the fireplace, and a cutout looks into the breakfast room.

Columns accent the entrance into a four-season sun room with a vaulted ceiling, wood flooring and several windows. The vaulted ceiling peaks near a cutout that is part of the second floor hallway.

A long island that can seat eight is the centerpiece to the kitchen as cherry cabinetry with complementing granite countertops fills one wall and wraps around wall ovens and appliances. The island has a double sink, built-in dishwasher and wine cooler and has hanging lights above. A cooktop has a stainless-steel hood vent, and a tile backsplash fills all the wall space between the cabinetry.
