SHOULD BE ON A MAGAZINE COVER! This striking mid-century multi-level has stylish contemporary finishes throughout. The uniqueness of this home is apparent in the keen attention to detail. A floating granite kitchen table, a softly curved wall in the foyer, a 3-sided gas fireplace, and a lighted granite pass through from dining to living areas are just a few highlights. The huge lower family room invites relaxation next to the marble gas fireplace or in the jetted soaking tub in the nearby spa bath. Or enjoy meeting with friends at the Nakoma country club, located right next door.
