The Entry | Come on in!  Family and friends enter the home by passing over the large covered front porch. (That is if you can get your guests past the porch!  They just might sit and stay a spell!). 
Front Hallway | The hallway leading from the front door is bordered by an office/study and powder room to the right, the dining room to the left.  The hallway flows from the front door around the dining room into the kitchen. Dining room is delineated by partial walls allowing a feel of an open floor plan.
Kitchen/Breakfast Nook | The kitchen has wonderful natural light streaming in from all the windows in the breakfast nook. The kitchen is user-friendly with plenty of counter space for food preparation and entertaining.  This is a great space to handle the large dinner party, yet quaint enough for a couple or small family.  There is ample cabinet storage and a kitchen island.  The breakfast nook features a wall of bay windows to differentiate the nook from the rest of the kitchen and makes a great space to eat breakfast, drink coffee and/or read the paper as you enjoy gazing out to private views.  
Great Room | The great room flows from the kitchen/breakfast nook and offers convenient living spaces.  The great room is open with a two-story ceiling.  A staircase leads to second story with open hallway to look over great room.  The fireplace adorned by stone from hearth to ceiling is a cozy focal point.  A French door leads from the family room opening onto a cozy outdoor living space.
Dining | A formal dining room sits off the left side of the entry foyer.  The foyer hallway continues around the dining room and leads to the kitchen allowing convenient access for food service.  This is an elegant space for the special occasion dining or every night family dining. 
Office/Study | Sitting to the right of the entry foyer is an office/study.  Featuring a built-in bookcase, this room is the perfect first floor location for a private office or reading retreat. 
Master Bedroom | The first floor master bedroom is carpeted and features a tray ceiling with fan.  A wall of windows brings lots of natural lighting in the space with lots of room for sleeping and a sitting area for a private retreat.
Master Bath | The master bath features a double sink vanity, separate water closet, garden tub and walk-in shower.  This is the perfect spa retreat.
Upper Level | Located upstairs from the great room are three bedrooms and a full bath.   Enjoy plenty of room for kids or guests, office or study.  You’ll have amazing light for a home in the woods.
Bonus Room | This space is great as a bedroom or could be used as a toy room, home school classroom, exercise room or craft room.  The possibilities limited only to your imagination.
Guest Rooms | The upstairs is completed by two additional bedrooms which are fully carpeted with cozy window seats in the alcoves. These quaint rooms are ideal for family members or guest accommodations. The rose room has large walk-in closet for additional storage.
Guest Bath | The second story is completed with a full bathroom to service the upstairs bedrooms. 
Finished Basement | Featuring kitchenette and large sitting area, this is the perfect recreation or game room for movies, games or cards. The space is complimented by full bath, two guest rooms and a large storage closet for storing holiday decorations or all the canned goods from the garden!  The walkout basement accesses a large concrete patio. Three large windows bring lots of light to this lower level space.
The Workshop | Located across the driveway from the house is a three-bay garage and/or workshop.  Attached to the rear is a covered storage area for equipment storage or could be converted to stalls.
Outdoor Venues | What a view!  Enjoy this tranquil outdoor setting, a pleasant retreat for solitude, meditation or reading a book or maybe a barbecue.  At Lily of the Valley Farm, you’ll have all the amenities of a bed and breakfast without ever leaving home.
