The living room is warm and welcoming, with its on unique set of views, imaginative wood trim on windows and doors, and walls, and ample space for entertaining, or relaxing with friends. The picture below reveals a warm brick fireplace that is perfect on a chilly night.
A reverse view reveals yet another, and perhaps a bit more formal area for entertaining. There is an ideal spot for a dining room that is just adjacent to the kitchen. This location allows guests to share time with the cooks as they are preparing the meal, while perhaps enjoying an evening view of the area.
This is a truly impressive kitchen that should please the fussiest of cooks. Starting with the eat-in kitchen counter space, warm wooden floors, and impressive overhead lighting, it is an imaginative concept.

Another bedroom with soft carpeting, crown moulding, and exceedingly spacious windows, is exceedingly flexible for a number of potential floorplans.

Stepping through the glass doors reveals an impressive multi-level, and well thought out, patio and garden area, with mature trees, a vegetable garden, fruit trees, and heirloom roses. Be sure to note the built in BBQ island that is close to indoor and outdoor dining areas.
Directly behind the BBQ area is this inviting professionally designed putting green, that can provide enjoyment for the true golfer or average duffer.
The term "sweeping view" certainly applies to the views above and below. Whether evening or morning, sunrise or sunset, they are memorable.
