Upon entry, you~ll be amazed by the eleven-foot-high ceilings; the brilliant natural light that floods the living and dining areas; and the dramatic, antique English black marble fireplace, featuring a Venetian plaster chimney.

The custom-made white oak floating credenza, with its integrated lighting and black soapstone top, adds a finishing touch.
