The main suite on the first floor is a coveted feature, and the great room, designed by architect Lynch Martinez, is an inviting place to gather. With four bedrooms and a 2-car garage, the home is within easy distance to so much, including shopping, restaurants, and Germantown Academy. The private setting complements this graceful home with its understated elegance. A gracious, hardwood foyer greets the visitor, and leads to a study with built-ins to the right of the entrance.
