Indoors: The seller is an interior designer who made extensive improvements inside and out, including the addition of a large, screened porch. He also painted the house black.
Turning left from a small entrance hallway, you enter a living-and-dining room with pine floorboards, oiled-cedar ceiling planks and a wood-burning fireplace with a blackened-steel surround. The separate kitchen contains black cabinets and black honeycomb-shaped wall tile. The countertop material, Dekton, is a composite of quartz, porcelain and glass. The appliances include a Fisher & Paykel wall oven and cooktop, a Liebherr refrigerator and a Faber hood.
A bedroom wing to the right of the entrance includes a powder room with grasscloth-covered walls and a floating sink. Two guest rooms lie beyond, one with double closets and overhead storage, and the other with a tall, black-painted wainscot and an en suite bathroom with a walk-in shower faced in black-stone tile.
