Situated to the rear of the home is the master suite. Expansive and private, the master suite has an adjacent den which is designed to be easily converted into the fourth bedroom. Entering the master suite you pass through the well appointed dressing area with generous wardrobe closets, built-in chest of drawers and vanity accompanied by copious storage space. The master bath is partitioned with elegant rice paper panels. The master bedroom overlooks the spacious rear yard, yet offers privacy and seclusion. The kitchen’s design is well integrated with the family room and features the original cabinetry and layout. Two guest rooms compliment the front portion of the home. Both are spacious and have ample closet and storage space with a private full bath.
