This space is perfectly coordinated by stainless steel appliances, white cabinetry and checkerboard flooring. Both the dining room and kitchen lead to an open air English courtyard where a brick walkway wraps around the rear of the home and is lined with beautiful rose bushes.On the second floor, a den with floor-to-ceiling built-in shelving and a third fireplace offer the possibility for a library or office.
