At the back of the home is the Family room that features vaulted ceilings with timber beams, a stone fireplace and three sets of French doors that open to the covered terrace. Adjacent to the Family room is a large breakfast area that opens to the kitchen and features the fourth stone fireplace in the home. The kitchen is a chef’s dream with abundant counter space, two sinks, six burner Wolfe gas cook top, double ovens, built-in microwave, two Bosch dishwashers and Sub-Zero refrigerator, freezer and two cooling drawers.
