From the moment that you enter this home you will know why this home is so special. You are immediately greeted by distressed edge “Warm Walnut” travertine tile flooring installed in the luxurious Versailles pattern popular in many luxury homes. Just inside the front door to the left is a private office space isolated from the rest of the house complete with an adjacent 1/2 bathroom. Past the office is a separate formal dining room with a butler’s pantry complete with extra cabinets and granite countertops. The butler’s pantry connects the formal dining room to the kitchen. The Great Room and the kitchen are adjacent and together form the heart and soul of the home.
