The spacious living room offers deep-sill windows, wainscoting, and a wood-burning fireplace with classic mantel and marble surround as the room's focal point. Beautiful hardwood flooring, archways, crown molding, and recessed lighting. The library boasts a second wood burning fireplace, the ideal flex space for a home office or craft room. The spacious formal dining room with expansive bay window peaks out at the leafy grounds beyond, and transitions to a full butler's pantry complete with dishwasher, bar sink and bev/wine fridge. Continue through to the beautiful open-concept Chef's kitchen fitted with professional stainless appliances, classic cabinetry, stone backsplash, and a fabulous carerra marble island.
