Formal living and dining rooms flank the entry foyer, showcasing the white oak hardwood floors, running throughout. The living room is embassy-sized, offering an ideal centralized gathering place and featuring one of three gas fireplaces in the home. A full butler’s pantry connects the dining room to the home’s more informal areas. These areas revolve around the chef’s kitchen, whose large unbroken swaths of Italian imported Carrara marble complement white shaker cabinetry and a full suite of commercial-grade Thermador appliances.

Three additional bedrooms and two additional full bathrooms complete the second level. On the finished third level, multiple skylights bathe the floor in natural light, while abundant recreation space is ideal for a fitness studio or private place for remote work.
