There are two outdoor decks facing the water, one that is large (450sf approx) and one that is medium sized (150sf approx). Large fully-functional chefs kitchen. A huge atrium skylight gives amazing views of the reservoir (with mechanical shade if you need to limit light). Beautifully landscaped front and backyards.
