The corner window has been recently expanded to allow more enjoyment of view. Separate from the living room is the formal dining room with windows overlooking the patio area. You'll love the kitchen with granite counters and ample cabinet space. There's even a breakfast nook next to the slider that leads to the patio. The master en suite is spacious with a huge walk-in closet and another slider leading to the patio and laundry closet. The second bedroom is also a good size with its own walk-in closet.
