The full moon hangs huge in the night sky shining across the bay and in through the large master bedroom windows.
An open stairwell leads you to the second floor landing and open hall which doesn’t let you miss any water views. At the top is an oversized full bath with, large linen closet, Italian porcelain floor tile and lovely views up the open grounds of the back yard through the ceiling to almost floor length window.
