Approaching the front door, the gorgeous coastal style is enhanced by the welcoming front porch with beadboard ceiling. The timeless appeal is evident as you step inside. Designed by noted architect Rick Swanson, this stone and cedar home was expertly designed and interpreted in a classic style with beautiful expanses of windows to bring in tons of natural light all day, and a thoughtful floor plan for maximum enjoyment of each room. White millwork, 10' and higher volume ceilings, true divided light windows with transoms, outstanding craftsmanship, five fireplaces and beautiful architectural details are detailed consistently throughout. The heart of the home is the kitchen, and this kitchen is memorable, designed in a transitional style with furniture quality custom inset cabinetry in a warm ivory finish. Featuring built-in lighting, granite countertops, stone backsplash, and high-end stainless-steel appliances, this kitchen was designed for gourmet cooking and everyday functionality, with a new range, refrigerator/freezer, pizza oven, dishwasher, microwave, walk-in pantry and extensive storage. A nearby butler's pantry includes plenty of counter space and a warming drawer for entertaining ease. The expansive island includes storage and counter seating for three stools, plus a prep sink .

Opening from the hallway, the most spectacular three season room awaits, with a vaulted ceiling with beams, stone fireplace with gas logs and starter, and unbelievable views, it's like being in a treehouse!

Best of all, there's an elevator that's perfectly integrated into the home's floor plan, servicing all three levels.
