Among the architectural focal points are trimmed, peaked gables; masonry detailing; and inviting front porches. Superb interior standards include custom-quality kitchen cabinetry; luxurious master ensuites with soaker tub and separate shower; high performance engineered flooring, plush broadloom and a selection of imported ceramics; main or second floor laundry (all as per plan).
