If you’re looking for a home that feels like you’re in the country but is close to town, where the neighbors are friendly but the home is private and secluded, and where the sounds of Wilkinson Creek lull you to bed at night, you have found it.

This cheerful and beautifully maintained home is located in The Settlement, a small community equally close to Pittsboro and Chapel Hill/ Carrboro (less than ten miles) and just five miles from grocery stores, drugstore, hardware store, and state of the art fitness facility.

A winding walkway leads you to the cozy front porch tucked away behind the well-maintained shrubbery.  The front door is surrounded with sidelights and transoms which fill the foyer with light.  Hardwood floors in the main living areas and main floor master bedroom anchor the space with natural beauty and timeless elegance.

The two story great room retains a feeling of comfort thanks to the intelligent use of color and design.  A gas fireplace anchors the room, flanked by tall windows which flood the room with natural light. The formal dining room is large enough for dinner parties and family dinners, and a sound system is wired into the great room as well as the master bedroom.

The U-shaped kitchen features a work peninsula with extra counter space and includes a pantry for kitchen storage.  The breakfast room looks out to the screened porch and the beautiful lot to the rear of the home.  A mudroom provides a portal from the two-car garage to the interior spaces.

The main floor master bedroom has vaulted ceilings and a cleverly placed window just above the bed which adds design flair as well as light.  The master bath features a custom tiled shower with ensuite commode and whirlpool tub, glass block window for light with privacy, and a spacious walk-in closet with organizers.

Upstairs you will find a loft bedroom which is currently used as an office and is open to the great room below but could easily be enclosed for additional privacy, and the third bedroom as well as a full bath.  The bonus room over the garage offers a myriad of uses such as media space or fitness room.

This home offers abundant opportunities to enjoy the beautiful surroundings.  The screened porch will provide a peaceful place to relax throughout most of the year, and the large deck is perfect for outdoor dining and parties.  The lot gently slopes down to the creek  and is ringed with hardwood trees for greater privacy.

This home is served by the highest ranked Chatham County schools: Perry Harrison elementary, Margaret Pollard middle school and Northwood High.
