This two-story New American home radiates a craftsman appeal with its board and batten siding, stone accents, low-pitched gables, and a covered entry porch framed with tapered columns.
Upon entry, you are welcomed by a living room on the left. The family room ahead connects to the eat-in kitchen creating a nice gathering spot. It extends onto a covered porch where you can lounge and enjoy alfresco dining. The kitchen features a generous walk-in pantry and an immense island with double sinks and a snack bar.
The primary suite occupies the left side of the house. It comes with a 5-fixture bath, a walk-in closet, and private access to the back porch. A guest room lies across the home and neighbors a full bath.
Upstairs, three more bedrooms reside. They are accompanied by a second laundry and study, a home office, and a spacious loft that overlooks the foyer and family room below.
The lower level provides two additional bedrooms, a recreation room, an exercise room, a home theater, and an enormous family room with a fireplace and kitchenette.
