The interior of the home boasts warm tones with durable slate tile flooring in the foyer, hall, mud room, main bathroom and kitchen. There are rich granite countertops which tastefully contrast with the white wood cabinetry, while a skylight bathes the space with natural light. The spacious picture-windowed great room has California shutters, and there are 11-foot ceilings in both the living and dining areas. Additional features include wood built-ins, a slate-surround gas fireplace, and french doors that lead to a deck for outdoor entertaining. The master bedroom has a walk-in closet, and a five-piece ensuite complete with relaxing soaker tub.
