The entire lower level living area has been thoughtfully and tastefully remodeled and reimagined, including a beautiful en suite bedroom.

Dark-stained, Brazilian hardwood flooring creates a dramatic effect against the off-white, smooth stucco walls. Custom light fixtures and window coverings adorn key areas of the house. The kitchen is designer-perfect with custom cabinetry, an oversized island topped with beautifully-veined quartz countertop, WOLF and SubZero appliances.

Off of the kitchen, the breakfast nook is tucked into a curved wall of windows with a custom bench seat to offer extra seating. The family room is warm and inviting with custom built-in cabinetry anchoring each side of the fireplace and two sets of French doors leading to the oversized, covered patio outside. Beyond the covered entertaining area is more backyard space with enough room to drop a “spa/pool” in-ground.
