The second floor consists of a master bedroom suite along with 4 bedrooms, each with a private bathroom. The master bedroom suite is designed with 2 separate bathrooms & dressing areas. The basement is fully finished, with a large play room, guest bedroom, exercise room, wine cellar, bar & changing room for the pool.
