A Thoughtful Floor Plan

The layout of the home flows well. The living rooms are both quite spacious and well suited for entertaining. The large lanai space off the living area helps the home live larger than its square footage. The orientation of the lanai is ideal for both views and it is out of the brunt of the trade winds.

The kitchen offers plenty of cabinet and counter space. The large bar area of the central island accommodates four or more for informal meals. The layout of the kitchen orients both the the sink and the stove towards ocean views taking the burden away from meal prep or dish duty.
