Terrific home with plenty of common areas on each floor. The sunroom off the kitchen was a cozy place to watch the sunset. Having the hot tub on the deck instead of out by the pool made it easily accessible on the chilly late winter/early spring days.

Due to the high temperatures during those months pool heat is not necessary, therefore the pool heat amenity is not available.
