A pair of french doors open up to the expansive pool deck which surrounds the sparkling in-ground pool with diving board, all overlooked by an upper balcony with an exterior spiral staircase.

Both bedrooms feature direct access to the expansive second floor balcony, which directly overlooks the backyard and pool area, as well as attic access.
