Lovely cultured stone surrounds the wood burning FP, a cathedral ceiling frames the view shed for stupendous sunrises. Each interior door is solid wood, with beautiful upscale hardware. Everything has been carefully considered, here. This home could have 3 masters, with one large bedroom on each floor. MOM has a walk-in shower and double closets. The finished, walk-out, basement has a bedroom, a bathroom and a family room that's over the top and it's already stubbed up for a wet-bar. Outdoors, the concrete drive is pressure rated for 5 rather than the standard 3 PSI and utility pipes were set underneath before the concrete was poured. You'll find that drainage and wiring for electric was been well thought out. There's plenty of parking and the carport, a rarity in this neighborhood, has storage above and lights, yes, it's wired for electricity. To the side of the house a concrete slab was poured for a storage room that was never built. The plan was to have a hot tub too, and the water and wiring is there.
