The front porch protects the front door and provides guests shelter from rain, snow or summer heat. Stepping inside the lofty foyer has a tall ceiling, open to the second floor. Straight ahead are the stairs and to the left of the foyer the entry hall passes by the home office. If working from home is nothing the family needs to accommodate for this space can easily be furnished as a study, library, or hobby space.

An island in the kitchen boasts an eating bar and serves as a visual buffer between the two rooms. The living room has the option of being open to the dining room. A set of double pocket doors can closet this room off if privacy is desired. Centered along one of the walls is a fireplace which helps to keep the living room bright during cold, winter evenings.
A set of double doors off the kitchen open to the oversized laundry room. This space is outfitted with washer, dryer, sink, plenty of storage and room for an ironing board and built ins. If desired this room could function as a mudroom.
The second floor is filled with three bedrooms and a family room.
