Views of the surrounding mountains also enhance its peaceful setting.

Fresh and bright, the kitchen is updated with white cabinetry with custom pullout shelves, sleek quartz counters and backsplashes, and a garden window over the stainless farmhouse sink. A bay window with plantation shutters enhances the adjacent casual dining area with a built-in buffet with upper glass-faced cabinets and a quartz counter and backsplash.
