Solid oak hardwood floors with decorative border inlay, smooth finished walls, numerous built-in cabinetry, gallery lighting, high ceilings, and crown molding are featured throughout. A George Nelson “Design Within Reach” collection foyer chandelier contributes a little contemporary flair to the iconic design.

There are five bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, office/library with glass French door, and a gourmet kitchen with adjacent family room. Expansive entertaining spaces include a formal living room with wood burning fireplace separated from the formal dining room by a half-wall with built-in cabinetry and beveled glass doors.
