This 6 bedroom, 4.5 bath gem displays well its fine craftsmanship; 10' ceilings, 8' high interior paneled doors, tray ceilings in the Dining Room, Great Room, Casita & Master Bedroom & rich moldings throughout the house (double crown moldings & 8" floor moldings) and wide plank Bruce Cherry Hardwood floors. The effect is nothing short of elegance and class yet architected to create warmth and coziness. As you approach the front of the house, you are greeted with a trellis of beautiful wisteria and flowering plants. This sets the tone. Once inside the spacious foyer, you are struck by the grandeur & elegance of this home's decor.
