Completely unique and beautifully designed this five bedroom, six bathroom property successfully mixes a sense of spaciousness (due to vaulted ceilings in many of the rooms) and warmth. Hand distressed walnut floors and innovative features like a hideaway home work area for the kids and secret attic playrooms make this home very special.

Newly built in 2009 it also offer incredible green features like solar panels, solar pool heating, tankless water heaters, low VOC interior paint and low UV structural recycled glass. Truly one of a kind.
