This home offers a large private 1st floor master suite with vaulted ceiling, gas fireplace, full bath, walk-in closet and 2nd floor sitting room. Complete with wet bar and french doors to the patio and pool. The sun filled gourmet eat-in kitchen with vaulted ceiling and professional grade appliances is every homeowners dream! A family room is off of the kitchen with windows all around truly bringing the outside in.
