$414,900  This custom built home in Governors Village offers the pinnacle of hand-crafted design and architecture, with features typically found only in homes of much greater cost. From the narrow plank beech floors to the 8’ doors and detailed molding, to the fine finishes in the kitchen and baths, you’ll know the moment you step through the old-world mahogany entry doors that you’ve arrived somewhere beyond the ordinary.

On the main floor, each of the public rooms flows into the next for a seamless living area that feels spacious and full of light. The great room ceiling vaults to 20 feet, with high windows that stream sunlight into the room from multiple angles. A gas fireplace provides easy warmth for cold evenings, and built-in bookshelves add storage and comfort.

The guest room or office is beautifully lit with large windows on two sides, and features a walk-in closet and private bath with custom tilework and ceramic floors. The stylish powder room is tucked away in an alcove for privacy. The walk-in hall closet also includes the wiring for the surround sound system and houses your stereo equipment for easy access.

The kitchen is a masterpiece of beauty and function. Glazed cabinetry with pull-out drawers, granite countertops, stainless undermount sinks, and Bosch appliances including gas cooktop in a deluxe center island with counter bar – all combine to make this a kitchen you will love to cook in. There is room for a breakfast table or additional cabinets as well.

A breezeway serves as a portal from the garage at the very back of the home as well as the screened porch and brick patio. The screened porch is private and well-screened from neighbors, and the patio provides the perfect place for grilling. Steps from the garage lead to an unfinished attic space which offers potential for future expansion.

The master bedroom suite is truly a masterpiece, with a master bath unlike any other in Governors Village. Rubbed espresso cabinetry, marble countertops with undermount porcelain sinks, tumbled marble tile surrounding the deluxe whirlpool tub, and a large glass shower with body sprays and custom marble tilework. The walk-in closet is a dream, complete with furniture-grade organizers. A second closet in the bedroom itself supplements your storage options.

The second floor includes a loft area for exercise, office or play, and a generously sized third bedroom with adjacent walk-in storage (this third bedroom could be divided into two smaller bedrooms). A full bath is conveniently located at the top of the stairs with a tub/shower combination and dual sinks.

There is plenty of expansion potential in this home with two walk-in attic spaces: one on the second floor, and an adjoining space over the garage.
Governors Village is a conveniently located community within a short walk to grocery store, restaurants and coffee shop. The growing commercial area includes banking and investment firms and will continue to expand its offerings over the next few years. The community offers easy access to Research Triangle Park and the airport via beautiful back roads, making for a peaceful commute to work.
