the sticker shock is pretty hard to bear (4.25mil) when the assessed value is only 1.857mil (948k for land + 909k for the house).
still, the house has some nice features:
the kitchen is huge but also offers a grad view and access to the patio. integrated fridge and marble backsplash add nice finishing touches. the cabinets reach right up to the ceiling keeping the lines of the house to a minimum.
nice use of windows in the dining room. rather than pacing the windows at eye-height, they are placed high above and at floor level to bring in light but keep the privacy. also allows for wall space to hang art.
large deck offers usage all year round so the owners can enjoy vitamin d sunshine and liquid sunshine.
sprawling backyard offers many places to enjoy the sun and gardening.
