the floorplans clearly show the clever layout. check out the staircase located centrally rather than up against a wall. One thing i really like about the master bedroom is the way the bed is located behind a wall (not visible from the doorway.
the kitchen with large corner window into the back deck with a view.
the dining room features folding door system to open up the corner of the house to the awesome deck and extending living space beyond the interior space. note the well organized consolidated electrical switches/panel at the wall by the door.
the living room has a stunning built-in and some interesting windows dispersed to bring in light from all available sides.
the main bathroom has a freestanding tub and a walk-in shower. simple tile work does not overpower the beauty and simplicity of the space. it is nice to have the toilet hidden from view.
the back yard area is great for all season usage with a covered deck and also a lawn area for those sunny days.
