From the tiled entrance area which has a bank of windows, you enter the living room with cathedral ceilings, skylights and a large Mullion window. The furnishings are colorful, modern and comfortable.
The welcoming large cheerful master bedroom has a king bed. There is a small couch to get warm on in front of the bedroom fireplace, a flat screen TV, air conditioning, comfortable wing-back chair for reading or relaxing and in the summer the French doors open to the outside pool.
The floors are pine throughout the house. The living room and the kitchen-dining area are open, separated only by two wide pine steps.
