Stepping inside the home, there’s a dark accent wall with hooks for hanging up jackets, and a wood bench for taking off shoes.

Sliding doors open the interior spaces to the backyard, that features a wood deck with seating that wraps around a large tree.

Back inside, and offset from the central hallway, the stairs that lead up to the second level of the home is deliberately discrete, and the architects decided to incorporate the sculptural section of floating stair hanging above the main hallway.

Upstairs, there’s a playroom with a built-in window seat that takes advantage of the large picture window.

In one of the bedrooms, white walls and high ceilings gives the room a lofty feeling, while the windows provide tree views and a glimpse of a brick chimney.

In one of the bathrooms, a mirror in front of the window hangs from straps attached to a wood rod, while a floor-to-ceiling glass shower screen separates the shower from the rest of the bathroom.
