Sprawling main level includes owner's and guest suites, spacious living room with wood-burning stove, dining room, breakfast room, keeping room and chef's kitchen. The kitchen is well-appointed with custom cabinetry, Italian granite countertops, island prep sink, subzero refrigerator, professional grade 6-burner gas range with electric convection oven and side gas oven. Separate ice maker, butler's pantry and large storage pantry make entertaining a delight. The keeping room offers a stone fireplace with wood-burning stove, built-in cabinetry, and vaulted ceiling. Step out of the keeping room through one of three sets of French doors onto the screened porch. The owner's suite includes double French doors and a fireplace. The main level is defined by expansive windows overlooking the private, wooded property and lovely heart pine floors throughout the common areas. Finishing off the main level includes mudroom full bath, half bath and laundry room with sink and extra storage. Upstairs you find a loft with heart pine flooring and three guest bedrooms all with ensuite tiled bathrooms and ample storage.
