A commodious kitchen offers table seating for eight, as well as chef-quality amenities including double wall ovens and a wine cooler.

One of 5 bedrooms, the master suite features a spacious, spa-like bath and huge walk in closet. The newly constructed lower level boasts high ceilings, recessed lighting, and full-size windows.
