It is a breath of fresh air to find a newly constructed home that has been designed with consistent patterns and quality workmanship throughout. To begin, this home boasts  a handsome exterior and an interior layout that flows gracefully.  The Chef’s kitchen has high end appliances and exquisite stone countertops. In fact, throughout the home one finds interesting features constructed of various materials and textures. For example, the kitchen opens to the family room with a fabulous floor to ceiling ledgestone fireplace. The attention to detail can be found throughout the home from the gracious woodwork and moldings, the lighting and the  matching fixtures. Developer Louis Wolfson captures the essence of  this home as “unpretentious sophistication”.  I would have to agree.
