The home is a unique model having been expanded & modified by the original owner, & later remodeled & professionally-decorated by the current owner.
The main level has vaulted ceilings & great room design with bamboo floors, fireplace & 60″ HD TV that rises from a custom built-in console.
A screened porch across the back is accessible from French doors in both the great room, family room, & kitchen, with the porch large enough for both seating area & alfresco dining, overlooking the wildlife preserve.
