The kitchen features high ceilings with skylights, Jenn-aire cooktop, Bosch Dishwasher & GE Profile Refrigerator, granite counters and a wood stove. Just off the kitchen/dining area is a huge living room with large windows to take in the amazing views and a stone fireplace to add warmth and ambiance on a cold evening.
