When the sun comes out, your dining and living space just expand thanks to direct backyard access from the dining area. 

When you head upstairs, a large landing offers the potential to become an office or library, and you’ll also find the bonus room and all of this home’s bedrooms here as well. Not only is there room for loved ones to have their own private retreat to unwind in, but you can also transform any extra space into a fitness center, a den, a hobby room, play room, and more. The primary suite is also on the upper level, and this showstopper offers you your very own secluded sanctuary for rest and rejuvenation. In the bedroom, a contemporary color palette, crisp trim, an extra-large layout, and peek-a-boo mountain views on a clear day are all in the mix, while a walk-in closet and ensuite bath are at your fingertips as well. Highlights in the ensuite bath include dual vanities and a soaking tub, and abundant sunlight keeps things bright and cheerful! 

Your summer dreams can all come true in the backyard getaway, whether you’re envisioning weekend barbecues where the whole neighborhood is invited, afternoons spent gardening and putting your green thumb to work, or days where little ones can enjoy playdates out in the fresh air. A patio rests alongside a lush lawn, and neat landscaping just adds to the scenic atmosphere.
