Indoors: Behind the street-facing gate is a large front yard, with steps up to a covered porch.
The main part of the first level is open, with wide-plank hardwood floors; room for multiple seating areas and a dining area; and a fireplace is framed by a floor-to-ceiling river-rock surround.
The kitchen has two islands, both topped with granite; one has a built-in Wolf steam oven and the other has space for dining. The kitchen counters are quartz, and the appliances include a Sub-Zero glass-door refrigerator, a Sub-Zero wine refrigerator and a Viking range.
A hallway off the living room connects two guest rooms, a bathroom and a laundry room. Each bedroom is large enough to hold a full-size bed and a desk; one has a closet hidden behind a barn-style sliding door. The bathroom has white-shiplap walls and a white wood vanity.
Stairs in the living room lead to the second level, configured as one large primary suite. The landing has room for a small sofa, with built-in cabinets along one wall. The bedroom has high ceilings, a reading nook and a private balcony. The bathroom has a combination tub and shower.
Outdoor space: The front yard has paved and grassy areas, with a firepit and mature trees that provide shade. The space behind the house is also paved, and includes a building currently used as a home office.
Taxes: $31,200 (estimated)
