A concrete drive leads to a three-car, side-entry garage, and brick-paver walkways lead to both the front and side entry doors. Brick steps lead to the front door, which is covered by a storm door. A transom window is over the six-panel wood front door.

The home’s entry features wood floors, painted crown molding and a decorative lighting fixture. To the left is a coat closet, wood stairs leading up to the second level and a formal living room with gas fireplace.

The crown molding continues into the living and connected sitting room and matches the wood surrounding the fireplace. The open entries between each room are also surrounded by matching molding. The fireplace is double sided between the living and sitting rooms. All rooms have 9-foot ceilings.
