The master bedroom enjoys an elegant tray ceiling and the bathroom is designed with a dual-sink vanity and a large walk-in shower. A window brings light into the massive walk-in closet. Two bedrooms are on the opposite side of the floor plan. A skylight tops the secondary bathroom and the utility room has a sun tunnel. Upstairs, a bonus room with full bathroom awaits expansion.
