Inside, you'll find 4 beds, 3 full baths and 2 half baths with ABSOLUTELY jaw-dropping arched cathedral ceilings of knotty pine and oak flooring. The bonus-sized fully equipped kitchen offers a huge breakfast bar next to an oversized dining space. Along with boundless, creative entertaining space, the main level living area is complete with a built-in projector screen and deck area overlooking the rear of the property. A stunning, see-through column is the hub of the home which looks up into the 2nd level. Upstairs, a massive loft area overlooks the living room. Two ensuite bedrooms are located there along with a half bath. The home's set on a 12' square foundation with the ability to rotate electronically or manually.
