The Layout

On the main floor, beyond the wide entry hall, a spacious main floor bedroom and 1/2 bath, the main gathering area welcomes you with an open concept dining/living room with built-in wet bar. Natural light abounds here, in the sunroom and in the family room, which all access the river view patio. A floor-to-ceiling gas fireplace in the family room creates a beautiful setting adjacent to the dining nook. The kitchen is just the right size and perfectly laid-out, with oak cabinetry and a breakfast bar. Continue through to the main floor laundry room, noting the built in cabinets, and head out via the mud room to the side yard or to the garage.
