A large mud and laundry room provides access to a private garage at the rear of the residence. The home features a generous open living/dining/kitchen area with French doors opening onto a private sunny garden patio. There are two large ensuite bedrooms, a study, and powder room. Large window wells bring additional natural light into the home. The suite features traditional wainscoting and other heritage-style details in keeping with the character of Vinson House.
