A morning kitchen is located just down the large hall that runs the length of this home. Equipped with beverage refrigerator, Keurig and microwave. Open the doors at the end of the hall and step out onto your 12 foot wide covered porch with tons of comfortable Poly-wood Adirondack chairs, excellent seating to kick back, relax and watch the dolphins play in the surf. Continue up the stairs to the top floor main living area and WOW is the favorite word described by our staff of this spectacular interior space, and the views are absolutely the best around! The top floor boasts an expansive open-concept living, kitchen, and dining room. With soaring ceilings and an abundance of windows allowing in gorgeous natural light and stunning vistas throughout this fabulous interior space. The enormous kitchen is the heart of this home, designed for high living and a gourmets dream, with expansive Cambrian counter-tops, gas range, professional hood, wine cooler, large black slate refrigerator and built-in coffee bar.

The dining room is appointed with families in mind, with a considerable sized dining table and seating for 10, and another 6 bar-stools at the immense island bar. The living room has a generous sectional sofa, two swivel rockers, stripped swivel chair and the coffee table has 4 additional stools, perfect place for the kids to gather to play games or work on puzzles. Just down the hall is the half bath, and the top floor Master suite with king bed and sizable private bath with stand up shower and dual vanities.
