To the left of the entry is a bedroom. The wholly updated kitchen has light brown granite counters and oak cabinets, built-in china cabinet, and dining area with doors to a long deck and a full bath.
The family room has a dramatic exposed brick chimney rising toward the cathedral ceiling. The last room is a large office. The master on the second floor has a sitting area, fireplace, and a white bath with separate shower and a soaking tub. The two other bedrooms have deep closets.
