As you enter the house, the tiled foyer offers a perfect area for guests to arrive. A few steps up and the entrance opens out to a dramatic open floor plan with a walk around granite fireplace that features a contoured beam harvested from the property. The floor to ceiling gas fireplace faces the living room, which offers many seating areas perfect for catching a sunrise, moonrise or the effects of a glorious sunset on the opposing shoreline. The main floor features a variety of woods such as hand pegged black walnut flooring in the main living and dining area, birch flooring in the bedrooms and a cedar shower.
