There is a 1246 sqft, two-bedroom, two baths, two-level home, a separate 400 sqft two-level studio, workshop and carport, and other small outbuildings.

The open-plan main floor is awash with natural light, has warm wood floors, and a partially vaulted ceiling. It serves as a gathering place for family and friends, while the fully equipped, the high-end kitchen makes food preparation a breeze. It features a spalted maple, live edge island with prep sink, storage and seating, Heartland stove and wall ovens, Miele dishwasher, and Fisher Paykel fridge. The decks and stone patios, on three sides of this level, bring versatility and ease to all the indoor spaces. They provide options for sun, shade, or protection from rain while enjoying the views.

The lower level walkout incorporates the home’s two compact bedrooms, den, and sunroom. It also has the laundry area and one of the two stylish, tiled bathrooms in the house. There is a separate entrance to a sunny, grassed part of the property with peekaboo views of the water.
