Nearby, a rectangular country hardwood table has six ladder-back chairs with dark chocolate-colored cushioned seats for charmed dining.
Three round stools beside the malt-toned granite-topped bar provide additional seating. The ample kitchen includes white cabinetry and brushed stainless steel appliances to fulfill all of your culinary needs.
A spacious master bedroom on this floor features sunny windows, a king-sized bed, and an ensuite luxury bath with dual vanities and a tub/shower combination.
Two comfortably appointed guest bedrooms with cottage-styled furnishings are just down the hall. One includes creamy yellow walls, a queen-sized bed, and a sunny window for natural light.
The other guest quarters include soft beige walls accented by lovely landscape prints and a black metal frame queen-sized bed. Both bedrooms share a hallway bathroom with a tub/shower combination.
Making your way to the second portion of this vast vacation home, you will find additional living quarters with a full kitchen and dining area. The bright, spacious living room includes two warm butterscotch-colored couches and a chic abstract patterned armchair. They face a large wall-mounted flatscreen TV for entertainment beside a cozy gas fireplace.
Nearby are four high-backed straw woven chairs beside a round glass-topped table for dining.
Round wooden stools sit beside a richly mottled granite-topped kitchen bar for wining and dining. Glass doors lead to an adjoining screened-in porch overlooking the pool and patio.
