The home features 4,439 square feet of finished living space over three stories. An unfinished basement adds 1,701 square feet to be finished or used as storage.

The foyer opens through decorative columns to the formal living room, which offers a fireplace framed by built-in cabinetry.

Past the formal dining room, the generous island kitchen offers a snack bar and plenty of counter space. For unhindered conversation and interaction while preparing meals, it opens completely to the conversation room, a cozy family space featuring a bay window (a good place for a dinette set) and a hearth.
