The dining room leads to the kitchen with a breakfast nook with many windows overlooking the yard. The kitchen has white tile countertops, dark stained cabinets, and is well designed for serious cooking. Three large bedrooms and two full baths complete this level.

There is good interior detailing, including oak mouldings, paneled oak doors, and handsome oak flooring on the main level. This lovely home is completely detached, which makes it very bright, and with a good floor plan.

There is a lovely yard with mature trees, two decks, and a large, new hot tub, all in a very private setting. The garage will hold two large cars and there is considerable basement storage with high ceilings plus a washer/dryer and a secure wine room.
