Your main house is beautifully designed with soaring ceilings, gorgeous trims, and loads of natural light. Clear leaded glass at the front door, sidelights, and curved transom splash warm sunlight into your impressive entry. Rich teak is hand-set in a herringbone pattern to ground this space while stacked crown molding circles the 18-foot ceiling above. The first thing you notice is the gorgeous stair that curves up to the second floor where an airy balcony overlooks the entry. Formal rooms on your right and left are framed with stately fluted columns and cased arches that keep both spaces open to your entry. Coordinated chandeliers bring light and sparkle to all three spaces. Continuing through the entry you cross a gallery hall with the master suite and study on the left while the rest of your home lies to your right. Rich wood casework at the deep arch straight ahead frames the opening to your great room.
Your formal living room is to the left of your foyer, with soaring 15-foot ceilings beautifully accented with crown molding. A ceiling medallion anchors a chandelier perfectly scaled for this luxurious space. Detailed moldings at the windows and on the walls add an elegant feel while welcoming seating invites guests to linger.
On right of your entry, just past the gorgeous stair, your beautifully set dining table is ready for guests. Luxurious moldings at the ceiling and on the walls echo those of the living room opposite, tying these spaces together. A large window looks out to peaceful pastures and splashes light into the room. More millwork highlights the entry to your kitchen, which is just across the hall for easy access.

Above the bed beautiful clear leaded glass sparkles in the curved window.
Entering your master bath you pass through double doors to a central space defined by a sparkling chandelier and a stunning octagonal tray ceiling.
