Why it’s for sale Lee, 44, owns a women’s designer-shoe company, and Brian, 38, is an executive director at a home-care agency. They purchased the house as a second residence and now that they’re expecting a child, “We won’t be able to utilize it,” Lee says.

The Kauffmans have owned the home for more than four years and have “installed Hunter Douglas window treatments and wood flooring throughout, replaced the outdoor deck, upgraded landscaping and added outdoor lighting and PVC fencing on the [half-acre] property,” Lee says. The backyard features “[man-made] ponds with a stream that flows from one level to another and a beautiful in-ground pool. It’s surreal there,” she says. The 1973 ranch has four bedrooms and three and a half baths. “The house has a very open, airy feeling with ‘tons’ of windows and skylights. ... We love the large master suite. Its location in the house is totally private. It has cathedral ceilings, a huge walk-in closet and an [en suite] marble bathroom with a whirlpool hot tub and a separate enclosed shower,” Lee says. She adds:

“The kitchen has professional-grade appliances, marble countertops, floor-to-ceiling windows and a built-in wine cooler. There’s also a butler pantry right off the kitchen.”
