Beyond the living room is a large family room with a gas stove and pocket doors that can be closed off for privacy. The dining room, which boasts two gorgeous built-in corner cupboards,... leads you to the updated pristine kitchen with access to both a back staircase and a raised patio overlooking the gorgeous yard with beautifully-manicured gardens.
