From here, the home flows back into the dining room, which is lined in hardwood floors and, like the living room, has vaulted ceiling, ample natural light, and convenient access to the backyard patio.

The 2 other main level bedrooms are at the back of the house, down a hallway that houses a large linen closet with a sliding door as well as a laundry niche. Both bedrooms boast wall-to-wall carpet, sizeable windows, and convenient access to the home’s second full bathroom. Additionally, the third bedroom boasts a walk-in closet.
