Matching custom teak cabinetry offers extensive storage throughout the home. The huge master suite has treetop views through three south-facing windows, and boasts a hotel spa-style master bath with dual rain heads in the large tinted glass shower with its teak floor. A second windowed bedroom can easily be created in the open office area if needed, and there is a beautiful full guest bath. See alternate two-bedroom plan.
