An abundance of living space is only part of the appeal of this traditional French county home. Strong architectural elements and a lavish interior design, including cathedral-arched beamed ceilings, hand-scraped and French bleed-edged walnut floors, faux finished ceilings, and custom tile inlays add to the home's charm.
This home features heated floors in the basement, a mirrored flat screen television in the kitchen/family room, an expansive master closet, and a large laundry/crafts room with Romeo & Juliet balcony to the front yard.
The gourmet kitchen features a custom range hood in limestone, inspired by Romanesque architecture, a custom panel French armoire refrigerator, and a 12 foot antiqued granite island.
Every child needs his or her personal space, offered via a large secret kids room and a hidden passageway between the kids' bedrooms.
A 1,000 square foot concrete sport court under the garage creates a fun environment for staying active year-round. The fun continues in the sunken media area featuring a game room, 110-inch screen, and 14-foot granite bar.

Wood and Granite Combo - I intend to have my granite counter adjoin a wood surface like this. Did you do anything special to the meeting point in case of water build-up around the sink? It seems as though the wood surface might be slightly higher? And what wood did you use? Anything special to make it resistant to water? Thanks! »
Granite Sink - We love the look of this sink and were wondering if there was a downside to a sink like this? We've heard that because of the weight there was a good possibility of cracking at the seams. Thanks for the help! »
