The shaded front porch greets visitors with a welcoming graciousness and protects rooms within from the weather and hot sun. The foyer leads through a cased opening to a large hearth room with a view to the back and access to another covered porch for relaxing and enjoying the view.
A spacious kitchen with entertaining island opens directly to the hearth room and adjacent open dining area surrounded on three sides by a generous bank of windows. A convenient yet private powder room and laundry area are located just inside the kitchen service door to the back of the kitchen.
The master suite with its own fireplace, high beamed ceiling, his and hers walk-in closets and sizeable bath open to the hearth room and covered porch. At the front of the house at the base of the winding stair that leads to the second floor, a bright and functional "drawing room" can serve as a secluded study or office.
