IT DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER AND IT CAN ALL BE YOURS: A huge foyer says, Come In! On the right is the formal living room. To the left a spacious dining room where you can entertain in uncrowded comfort. During construction the owner took advantage of the bump-out being offered for the kitchen and added an island long enough to seat 6 in addition to the table space. Granite counters and beautiful 42" cabinetry makes this a cooks delight. The master bedroom will not disappoint! Three (yes 3) large walk-in closets. Three more nicely sized bedrooms and 2 more full baths. 3 -car turned garage, beautiful landscaping and a maintenance free deck. The full walk-out basement has plumbing for another full bath. This Toll Brother's home is only 6 years young. The community offers a pool, tennis courts and nice club house. Why not vacation right at home?
