One can instantly notice diverse textures and the exquisite beauty they bring inside the home, as each room offers something unique and exceptional. It is the lower level that houses the living spaces along with a fabulous kitchen where the long, custom island steals the spotlight, a beautiful dining room, a home bar and powder room. The second level hosts the kids’ playroom that would be transformed into a productive workspace with time and a mudroom that offers ample storage space. Kids’ bedrooms and additional utility areas occupy this floor, while the third level contains the master suite, home office and expansive, breezy deck.
