The dining room is steps away and has views to the back.
  • Take your entertaining outdoors and enjoy the covered outdoor living room (592 square feet) with a gas grill and a fireplace. This space connects to the rear porch (545 square feet). A convenient pool bath accessible from outside is a nice touch.
