Sitting on a little more than a third of an acre, this 2,900-square-feet, four-bedroom, 2½-bathroom Victorian was built in 2002 and by all appearances supports the homeowner’s claim that vacation resorts were her decor inspiration:
“I made it like a resort. There’s a beautiful heated pool with a waterfall and professionally landscaped tropical plants. There’s a man cave in the basement with a 125-gallon fish tank. We have a little home theater area with Surround Sound. Part of the basement was done in a sandy, beachy way with a bar area, a dance floor and a game room and the other side has a Serengeti feel about it . . . We have a big family room overlooking the granite kitchen with an open floor plan. The kitchen comfortably seats 10. The living room area has a two-story coral-like column tower. We entertain in there a lot as well. . . . The master bathroom has a Jetta tub, a TV with cable, a separate glass shower enclosure, a vaulted ceiling, skylights and a telephone.”
