With an atmosphere that is welcoming, friendly & fun loving - the layout of the house is perfect for families or groups, large or small. The Great Room/Dining Room & Rec Room are large enough for all to be together to talk, play games & relax.
The large Dining Room adjoins the Great Room, continuing the open feeling of the house. All can sit down together, even 25. The table easily seats 10, while the Bar between the Dining Room & Kitchen seats 5. Extra seating for 12 is available with folding tables & chairs, easily placed in open areas between the Dining Room & Great Room. There's plenty of space.

In addition, wet bars in the Great room & Rec room offer access to food and drink throughout the house. There is, also, an extra Refrigerator in the garage to help with overflow for a big crowd.
Stay in touch with the world, even work, at the large kitchen desk with high-speed internet access, or connect wirelessly throughout the house, even on the deck. If needed, there is a professional business center available less than 5 minutes away.
Unlimited fun awaits with a pool table (in the loft), poker table (in the Rec Rm), and an extensive selection of games from Chess to Backgammon with old standards like Clue, Monopoly, Scrabble, and more.
