Between the kitchen island, the granite table off the kitchen and the dining room table, there are plenty of eating areas for large-scale family gatherings, as Dana says:
“The kitchen and the living room are one big room. . . . We have a nice gas fireplace in the living room. We put in crown molding in the dining room. We restained the hardwood floors to a dark espresso color. . . .

"Our kitchen is very good if you’re into baking or cooking. We have a large center island and had a granite table custom-made to match the island (which will be staying with the house). We put in a backyard patio with pavers that goes out to a fire pit area. . . .

"We put in a six-zone in-ground sprinkler system and have a surveillance system . . . and an alarm system as well.”
