The front doors open to dramatic, sweeping staircase beautifully accented with a custom chandelier. Straight ahead, a unique arched walk-through draws the eye with artful coffee-toned swirls and textured design.

To your right lies a large formal living room with streams of sunlight flooding in from expansive windows. Built-in bookshelves showcase both art and literature, all backed with striking espresso hues. Above your head, the ceiling features lovely beams and papered plaster, giving the perfect appearance of flawless beechwood.

The large French doors open onto a backyard retreat with a modern pool / art piece, soaring trees, and a detached guest house. Lit from behind, the modern rock water fountain pours five streams of glowing water into the pool below.
