The living room has a vaulted ceiling with skylights, a wall of floor to ceiling casement windows looking out onto the serene woods, and a corner gas fireplace for those chilly winter evenings.

The ceramic tile continues into the large mudroom which contains room for a second refrigerator and has a wall of frosted cherry cabinets for storage and pantry space. And there is a cedar closet. There is a separate laundry room off the mudroom with cabinets for storage. Also on the main floor is a dining room with vaulted ceiling and French doors onto the back deck.
