This shingle style home was designed for a developer for an 8 acre rural site, with 5 of the 8 acres being wetlands. A two story foyer with a circular stair leads to a formal living room & dining on either side, with a family room towards the rear. A large kitchen and circular breakfast area overlook the rear pool & terrace. The second floor consists of a master bedroom suite along with four bedrooms and a game room above the garage.
