Experience the inside of its solid brick and stone 4-sided exterior the 3-levels boast over 10,000 square feet of living space.

From the moment you enter through the custom wrought iron double-doors, you’ll notice very few walls. Step into a receiving area that surrounds you with abundant luxury. The main level showcases an awesome flowing “door-less” open plan full of walnut hardwood floors that leads to a vastly appealing study complete with custom mahogany stained built-ins. The non-traditional placement of the stairs lends to the more conducive flow of connecting spaces for a seamless and continues feel. The grand gourmet eat-in kitchen marvels with a large marble-top center island, custom cabinetry, ledger stone back-splash, walk-in pantry with built-ins, and commercial grade appliances – for the serious chef in you – and then kick back in the adjacent family lounge made for relaxing. The entertainment possibilities are abundant and endless. The full sized mudroom is a dream overflowing with built-in maple cabinets and lots of cubbies and additional accommodations.

Great views can be seen from every room and angle enhanced by natural light. Charming outdoor areas provide over 1,600 square feet of entertainment spaces including an all stone with cedar ceiling grotto wired for outdoor speakers, courtyard, pool with pool deck, and its own exterior pool bath for convenience.
