The living room has a pitched ceiling and walls of built-in bookshelves. The kitchen has a dining nook with sliding glass doors opening onto a deck. Glass doors in both the living room and the foyer open to what was originally a sleeping porch, now enclosed and used as an office. The living room also opens to a second, west-facing deck.
