This large graceful beauty features flagstone flooring, huge great room w/ a central fireplace, dining room w/ a wall of windows & french doors for added light. The large gourmet kitchen has an oversized commercial-type Frigidaire refrigerator, Wolf gas range, all stainless appliances, & custom ceiling. Walk along the library room to the master bedroom w/ modern-style fixed light windows, french doors leading to the pool & center courtyard, & a 25' x 8' modern master bath W/ concrete vanity and poured concrete shower.
