The wood-burning fireplace with floor-to-ceiling brick surround and raised hearth accent the home’s rustic, natural setting.
The dining room also has hardwood floors, a double window overlooking the front yard and leads to the kitchen and the family room. The large kitchen with tiled floor is oriented towards views of the natural beauty of the property and features ample cabinets and counter space with built-in bookshelves featuring additional storage underneath. The washer and dryer is conveniently tucked away in a closet. A double door leads to the expansive deck and backyard.
The spacious family room has a high ceiling and two skylights that add to the airy feeling throughout the home. There is also a wet bar perfect for entertaining, a propane fueled cast iron stove and sliding glass doors leading to the deck.
Two bedrooms are on the first level and also feature hardwood floors. Each has windows with views of the property and closets. The main bathroom is located near the secondary bedrooms and has a tiled tub shower.

The partially finished lower level adds additional living space to the home and features a room currently being used as a fourth bedroom. This room has a closet, large windows overlooking the backyard and sliders to a covered area under the deck.

The backyard of the property provides multiple vantage points for enjoying the natural setting. A large deck that runs the length of the house provides additional outdoor space for al-fresco dining and recreation.
