The open great room/kitchen/dining room has a wall of windows that frame the beautiful view of the New England mountains. There is also a master bedroom on the first floor that includes a private master bath, and walk-in closet. The first floor also has a laundry area hidden away from the rest of the house. There are two bedrooms on the second floor that are separated by a balcony, and open to below. A sunroom off the dining room area makes for a quiet spot for cozy breakfasts, or a simple lunch with family and friends. The main floor has an outdoor deck and sunroom.
