This home was made to entertain. As you enter the 8,575 square-foot home, you are welcomed by a large foyer equipped with a double staircase. Decorative beams flow throughout the house and guide you from room to room. The large great room provides the home owners an exceptional view of their back yard, and the large deck provides a place to sit peacefully. The custom kitchen will ensure that all guests have a seat at the table, as the kitchen flows into the octagon-shaped dining room with many windows to provide natural light. On movie nights family and friends can gather in their luxurious theatre room, with no worry about forgetting the popcorn; this room includes a snack bar, too.

The home owners would not want to leave the lower level of the house. This floor is dedicated to relaxation and entertainment. The common room is a great place to socialize. The open-concept design gives guests a direct route to the bar and pool table. When in need of some peace and quiet the home owners can make use of their spa room outfitted with a sunken hot tub and their steam and dry saunas to relax in their home oasis.
