This is a light-filled contemporary with an open floor plan and many cathedral ceilings. A large and gracious entryway opens to the living room which, in turn, opens to the dining room, family room, and the kitchen with its eat-in area. (see the floor plan) Just a few steps up from the main level are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, while off the dining room, on the main level, are two more rooms, one of which could easily be used as a bedroom, the second being well suited as a home office. The lower level is almost completely finished with a large playroom, an exercise room, and an additional bedroom and full bath. There is direct entry from the two car garage into the house. The oversized deck has lovely views of the very pretty private yard.
