Question: What is the most unique feature about this house?
Answer: It has a very open floor plan with vantage points to beautiful private grounds, yet the rooms feel like their own purposeful space.
Q: What is your favorite feature to show potential buyers?
A: The gorgeous, open, two-story family room. It is open to the eat-in kitchen, and expansive deck so it appeals to clients who want that special ‘great room’ and still feels like they are part of the rest of the home. It is fantastic for entertaining.
Q: If this home were a celebrity, who would it be?
A: I’d have to say two actresses – Catherine Deneuve for the nod to the classic Country French style, and Helen Mirren for the subtle British nuances in the decor. Tasteful and understated.
Q: If this home were a style of music, what style would it be?
A: Easy Listening, as the home has a very comfortable and 'easy' feeling throughout.
