A wood burning fireplace is a fun feature in the middle of winter, and creates a focal point for the room. The built-ins are perfect for displaying your family treasures or storing game-night supplies. Discreetly placed around the corner is a half bath for guests that also serves as a pool bath.
The dining area is made for entertaining, placed conventionality between the kitchen and living room. Your heirloom table will fit comfortably, seating 8-10, along with a sideboard. Guests can move between the living area, kitchen, and outdoor sitting area as you enjoy their your company.
The screened porch works as a third living room for much of the year, offering a sunny area and a seating area covered for shade.
