overlooking the Boulevard and an original star inlaid in the
hardwood floor of the entrance hall. Modern touches include: a
kitchen with stainless appliances, granite countertops and
glass-front cabinets, a large master suite and an enormous
"great room" with built-in cabinetry, a fireplace and French
doors opening onto the deck and back yard for entertaining.
