With an ingenious and wonderfully flowing circular floor plan completed by the dappled rear patio, the home’s main floor immediately draws you under its spell.

Throughout this beautiful home, you will find a multitude of smart modern touches. The third-floor attic level is a teen paradise: two bonus bedrooms with shared hall bath, accessed through the enormous second-floor solarium. The phenomenal renovated chef’s kitchen boasts every conceivable convenience; with natural stone counters and subway-tiled backsplashes, counter-to-ceiling custom storage, built-in wine storage, enormous island with countertop Thermador induction range, Bosch standard oven and multi-purpose oven/microwave with warming drawer, concealed pull-out waste bins, bonus beverage refrigerator, dual sinks, and spacious garden breakfast nook, the kitchen truly has it all.
