The upper level — consisting of 2,774 interior square feet and 2 screened porches of 377 square feet — is the home’s primary living space with the kitchen and dining rooms, the living room, an office, the master suite and bathroom, a second bedroom and full bath, a powder room, and the mudroom/laundry room.
Nido’s beautiful Mesquite front door opens to the front entrance hall with its convenient coat closet. The office overlooks the lake and mountains to the west and can be easily accessed from the kitchen through the dining room.
The Living Room features custom-made Maple bookcases, a fireplace, an associated screened porch overlooking the lake, and mountain views. The Master Suite is accessed from the Living Room by a short hallway with a small built-in bookcase and the kitchen is accessed through double pocket doors.
Nido’s kitchen, its associated screened porch and adjacent dining room were designed to function on multiple levels and to accommodate an easy flow from the home’s hub to the outdoors. It is both a cook’s kitchen and an informal sitting/TV room. It can be accessed from the outside by the screened porch or the back porch and its associated mudroom area.
