The first floor is thoughtfully laid out for large family gatherings, where creating new memories is something an owner will enjoy for years to come.  The formal entry opens into a grand living room, with soaring ceilings and a wall of picturesque windows looking out over a sprawling front lawn toward the harbor.  The living room centers the home; to the west is an open concept dining, kitchen and comfortable sitting room where one can take in water views from every window while enjoying meals from the efficient chef's kitchen.  The kitchen offers granite counters, double sinks, double ovens, two Sub-Zero refrigerators and a breakfast bar.  Large sliding doors open out onto the expansive yard where you are steps away from enjoying a variety of water sports available off your own private peninsula.  The informal entry to the main house is located off an attached two car garage that leads you via a bead boarded mudroom past a laundry room, media room and separate pantry before arriving at the sun filled and inviting kitchen.  A cozy parlor is located off the east end of the living room where one can relax with a good book in front of one of the three fireplaces in the main house.  A light and spacious master suite leads off the parlor offering 180 degree harbor views out multiple windows.  A spacious walk-in closet and a grand bathroom with separate soaking tub, glass tiled shower, double vanities and laundry complete this wing of the home.  A powder room with teak and holly floors off the formal living room rounds off the first floor.
