The first floor offers two large bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. One bedroom opens into its own private sitting space lending potential for an in-law suite. This room also opens into the great room revealing majestic views bringing the outdoors in. Custom iron stair balusters from Great Britain trace the main staircase that takes you to the second level where you overlook the great room below. The staircase and upper rooms form an ~L~ shaped balcony to the great room reminiscent of a New Orleans courtyard.
