Enter through double wood doors to an inviting front foyer, which gleans with an elegant crystal chandelier and sophisticated travertine floors. Providing great entertaining flow, the entry is flanked by the formal rooms and also leads to the rear of the home, where travertine floors continue. Both of the formal rooms are appointed with tray ceilings and provide views of the front landscaped grounds. The living room is spacious and the elegant dining room is graced with a gorgeous crystal chandelier and also leads to the kitchen.
