At the top of the stairs, a built-in shelving unit offers a partition, while a secluded nook on the large landing can double as an office or play area. The lower level has a separate side entrance and offers a junior one-bedroom in-law suite with L-shaped kitchen and separate laundry room.

On the main level, the living room and family room both have tray ceilings and slate panel fireplaces.
