Property Description

This amazing ranch home was lovingly cared for and custom built by the original owner.

From the moment you walk through the beautiful leaded glass door you will be impressed. The spacious foyer boasts marble flooring and the spiral staircase to the walk-out basement is just stunning. The primary bedroom is truly a private suite with its spacious bedroom area with two closets plus an additional walk-in closet and a private bath including a marble jetted tub and separate shower with marble surround.
