Steve and Kristin’s 2,700-square-foot home is tucked into a lush wooded lot. Steve says:

“We did extensive renovations when we first moved in. Our dining room was previously a den when the former owners were here. It flows right into the sunroom, which opens up a 360-degree view of the backyard and the flowers, pool, deck and outdoor shower. I’m looking out there right now, and all I see is greenery, flowers and a beautiful blue pool. Some flowers are always blooming, whether it’s black-eyed Susans, sunflowers or hibiscus. …We love this sunroom. It’s 450 square feet, and has three walls of nearly floor-to-ceiling windows and a tray ceiling. It was designed by an architect and done beautifully by the previous owners. We’ve had parties here with as many as 50 people -- and that’s in the wintertime, not using the cedar deck that’s off the sunroom.

The deck leads to a concrete patio that surrounds the pool. The music/library room has built-in bookcases, a chandelier, a bay window and a grand piano, which, by the way, will be staying with the house.”
