The two-story great room opens directly to the island kitchen, where snack-bar seating encourages lingering. The kitchen's central location also makes it easy to serve meals to the breakfast nook on one side and the dining room on the other.
Having the master suite on the first level is a no-hassle choice (especially with the laundry room just steps away) that also helps with aging in place. It also features a window-side tub. a shower, dual sinks and a walk-in closet.
Two bedrooms upstairs use a full hall bath and have access to the large bonus room, which can become a playroom, exercise studio or home theater.
There's a handy bench and storage area that greet you coming in from the garage.
An unfinished basement features an additional 1,693 square feet of space to finish now or use as storage.
