Sport-court, including lined basketball three-point area. A smart in-ground sprinkler system that knows the weather. 5200 square feet.

There are two staircases leading from the main level to the large basement built for fun. A huge mud room with deluxe laundry facilities and custom shelving; a whole house generator; a flexible lower level entry room that currently serves as an exercise room, but previously served as a sixth bedroom.
