This three story shingle-style 3500 square foot home has huge banks of windows, private porches on every level, a screen porch and patio on the west and deck on the east. There is a gourmet kitchen and open plan dining and cathedral ceiling sun room, as well as a sunken living room with a natural fireplace.
