The home’s first floor showcases spacious, open living areas including a kitchen, dining room and L-shaped great room combination with a see-through fireplace, vaulted ceilings and large windows offering panoramic views throughout. The first floor master suite is a true retreat with coffered ceilings in the bedroom, a built-in coffee bar, spa bathroom with vaulted ceilings and his and hers sinks and a large walk-in closet. Completing the main level is a mudroom with pet area, office or fourth bedroom with bathroom and a two-car garage with detached carriage house for golf cart storage. On the second floor, two secondary bedrooms with bathrooms, an upstairs living space and a bonus room complete this home.
