Step up to the chefโ€™s kitchen which is situated at the heart of the home. Seamlessly connected to all the main entertaining areas, the kitchen offers an open concept working space. From the over-sized center island topped with leather finished granite counters, to cabinet faced premium appliances, to delightful details discovered in the backsplash and drawer pulls, this kitchen is flawlessly executed. Built-in wine refrigeration, double ovens, a warming drawer and large pantry are just some of the many amenities that make this space exceptionally functional.

The kitchen naturally flows to an elegant formal dining area with high ceilings and a built-in buffet. Beyond the dining area bi-fold French doors open to a formal study (or 5th bedroom), which is finished with stately shiplap covered gable ceilings and opens to a large ocean view deck. Splendid wall coverings and a charming wood-cased portal window accentuate the guest powder room area.
