Every once in a while you come across a home that is built with fine craftsmanship and the kind of attention to detail that is rarely seen in these modern times.  From the moment you drive up to this home built by Whitney Blair, you immediately know that this home is special with its delightfully curving front walkway, cottage-style rooflines and accents, and architectural window details.

The covered front porch presents a protected entry into the sweeping two-story foyer with its gently rising staircase and a glimpse of the sunlight beyond.  The arched transom windows in the living room add beauty and light, and elegant moldings and graceful columns invite you into the dining room.  The coffered ceiling and wainscoting add to the sense of timeless architecture.

The two-story family room features a fireplace with moldings to match the scale of the room.  Double french doors open to the screened porch and the magical views of the forest beyond which leads to UNC property with trails along Bolin Creek.

A delightful breakfast room is the perfect place to gather over the morning paper or informal meals. Every cook will warm to the beautiful kitchen with maple cabinets, five burner gas cooktop and double oven, and uniquely curved cabinetry supporting granite countertops.

The generously proportioned master suite is tucked away in a quiet corner and enjoys private wooded views.  Two walk-in closets are dressed with organizer shelving and the master bath features a whirlpool tub and separate shower with frameless enclosure and an ensuite commode.

On the second floor you will find three bedrooms and three full baths, and a spacious bonus room with several areas for different activities including built-in desk and cabinetry.  The third floor walk-up attic is plumbed and framed for future bedroom and bath and offers abundant storage.
