A main floor bedroom with cork floor and walk-in closet as well as direct access to the main floor bath, but also makes the perfect office. The second floor includes a loft/bonus room as well as two spacious bedrooms with large closets.
This home was built by Richard Harkrader with a high degree of quality and care.
