In addition to the large property the house is on, the rooms are large. Tara shares:

“The property and the neighborhood were the original draw for us. The house is on a large, truly parklike 1.25-acre lot in a million-dollar neighborhood. The backyard is large enough for a pool or tennis court.

"The living room, dining room and kitchen are on the main floor. Down five steps is the playroom, office and bathroom that we renovated all with radiant-heat flooring and nice French doors that lead to the backyard.

"Up five steps from the main level are two bedrooms and a bath, and then up five more steps is the master bedroom and bath and another bedroom. . . . There is hardwood flooring throughout the home except for the kitchen and bathrooms.

"We have a nice large porch in the back with walls of windows that look out onto the big backyard. A normal Sunday sit-down dinner in our family is 20-plus people, and it’s easily done here. We have a beautiful fireplace with an adjacent wooden feature wall, which has become very trendy.”
