The fireplace has a light travertine firebox surround and a richly stained trimmed out mantel shelf and side legs.
Entering the kitchen, you’ll notice that the floor transitions to a large-scale pattern in a light creamy color tile. The tile has the look and feel of old word stone and spans the kitchen, breakfast nook, and laundry room. The richly stained cabinetry is a nice contrast against the lighter floor. Cabinetry is all custom built and done in furniture finish, stained a warm medium natural brown and houses a high functioning well appointed appliance suite.
