The owners added a second story to the home in the 1960s, which serves as the oversized master suite offering views of the mountains and tree tops.
The first level has a formal entry. To the left is the living room with high-vaulted ceilings and a wood-burning fireplace. There is also a bay window. To the right of the entry are two spacious bedrooms with nine-foot ceilings and large closets. These two bedrooms share a full bath.
A family room at the rear of the home also has a bath and sliding doors with excellent views of the gardens and trees in the backyard. The formal dining room also has views of the backyard and could easily seat 12.
