A hallway off the kitchen leads to an ensuite bedroom and an office, while on the opposite side of the house there is a second office as well as the primary suite and two additional ensuite bedrooms
The primary suite is an opulent retreat, with oak beams, a fireplace, a sitting area, a custom armoire with a Venetian mirror, dual custom closets and a lavish spa-style bath.
