Views of the main floor with 11’ ceilings draw you onto wide plank engineered white oak hardwood floors and into the central kitchen designed with home chefs in mind. With equipment even professional chefs would envy, Thermador stainless steel appliances equip the kitchen with a refrigerator, dishwasher, a Silhouette bar fridge, a gas cooktop with a hood fan, and a built-in wall oven and microwave combo. Dressed with glistening quartz, an oversized 15.5’ central island with LED skirting creates an entertainment hub when hosting and perfectly serves guests appetizers and drinks from the bar fridge below. A hidden walk-in pantry is discreet and functional with a built-in coffee bar and ample room for food, small appliances, and more.
Effortless hosting will quickly become part of your repertoire as the space lends itself to dinner parties and summer soirees. The dining room overlooks the front courtyard through an impressive Southwest-facing window, and the party continues into the rear living room that opens to the back deck through full-height sliding glass doors. A built-in TV cabinet and feature wall offsets the tiled gas fireplace while expansive windows flood light through the space.
The real tiled mudroom is large and in charge with a built-in bench, built-in cabinets with under cabinet LED lighting with motion sensor activation and a full walk-in closet. You’ll never want for storage! An elegant powder room is located a few steps above the main floor, just off the staircase, and offers quartz counters and a custom mirror.
Superior design and style remain evident on the wood-wrapped steps leading up the staircase with a glass railing and motion-activated custom LED lighting. 9’ ceilings and large staircase windows create a grand showcase on the second floor equipped with three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and a full laundry room.
The stunning master suite features large dual walk-in closets with custom built-ins with LED lighting with motion sensor activation. An ensuite worthy of royalty has heated tile floors, a spa-like freestanding soaker tub, and a quartz vanity with dual undermount sinks and under cabinet motion-activated LED lighting. The fully tiled custom shower features full height tile, a rain showerhead, a handheld showerhead, a quartz-wrapped built-in bench, and motion sensor LED lights.
Two additional bedrooms each have their own walk-in closets with custom storage and share the main 5-piece bathroom. Design as a Jack & Jill, the bathroom hosts two separate vanities with under cabinet motion-activated LED lighting and a separate water closet with a toilet and tub/shower combo – perfect for bedtime! Everything you need for maintaining clean wardrobes and linens is found in the full-sized laundry room. Equipped with quartz countertops, built-in cabinetry, a linen closet, tile flooring, and a laundry sink, all your laundering needs are at your fingertip.
A fully developed basement offers at-home amenities some only dream of. A built-in custom wine room is equipped with a wine rack and glass door enclosure. Friday movie nights are the norm with a built-in medial cabinet, large rec room and ceiling speaker rough-ins. A pocket office with a built-in desk is tucked behind the media center, perfect for a homework nook or working remotely. Plus, your personal home gym is now a reality!

An entertainer’s dream, the backyard features a sizeable pressure-treated wood deck, a complete privacy fence, and low-maintenance landscaping.
