The main floor features a generous open plan, anchored by the true heart of the house: a beautiful kitchen with abundant storage space and a vast eat-in island. To either side of the kitchen are flexible living and dining spaces, including a more formal living space at the front of the home, and a more secluded den area to the rear. Opposite the kitchen is the first of two “patios” – transitional spaces that provide multi-seasonal use, plus an extraordinary gesture to bring additional natural light into the home.
