The interior of the home features approximately 3,480 square feet of living space on the main floor and there is an optional second floor as well as a walk-out basement foundation for expansion space. A three-car garage consisting of a double and single bay is conveniently separated by the adjoining porte-cochere which provides a lovely visual component to the exterior of the home. Both garage bays are located at the rear of the home offering unobstructed front views of the exterior. Off the single bay is a secondary entrance into the home where the mudroom, laundry room, and guest bath are found.
The main foyer entrance is situated off the extensive front covered porch where family and friends can be greeted in style. The interior foyer is flanked on either side by the study or dining room; the study features fabulous window views and a cozy fireplace for an intimate setting while the dining room features columned beams and large window views onto the front porch.
