Although this home has a Pittsboro address, it is ideally located right between downtown Pittsboro and Chapel Hill/Carrboro with great access to shops and restaurants nearby.  Set back from the road, surrounded by lovely homes and private views, you will appreciate the fine craftsmanship that is easily apparent: from the mahogany front door to detailed trim and moldings, with exquisite hardwood floors and stacked stone accents.

The welcoming foyer is graced by a solid mahogany door with leaded glass transom and skylights for both added light and beauty.  The great room is a masterpiece of design, with a multilevel tray ceiling and recessed lights, custom built cabinetry, a stacked stone fireplace with raised hearth and inlaid wide plank oak floors. Graceful columns provide an airy separation between spaces and a wall of windows with transoms lead out to the covered porch.

Cherry stained cabinets are just one special feature in the fantastic kitchen. A raised bar provides seating for guests and hides the sink.  A double oven, 6-burner Viking gas stove and pot filler will delight the most discriminating cook! Informal seating is found in the cheerful breakfast nook surrounded by windows.

The sunroom features beadboard ceiling with paddle fan and will bring many hours of relaxation and delight observing nature throughout four seasons.

The main level master bedroom is simply elegant with tray ceiling and recessed lights, wood inlay flooring, and direct access to the deck. Two walk-in closets are exceptionally convenient. The sumptuous master bath is indeed a luxury retreat: his and hers vanity areas, beautiful heated tile flooring and tub surround, an oversized tiled shower and a large soaking tub for the ultimate in relaxation.

The main floor includes two additional bedrooms  and a full bath. The large bonus room on the second floor offers a multitude of options for use as a playroom, office, exercise or media room and the second floor bedroom includes a generous private bath and plenty of closet space.

Outdoor living is a highlight of this home, with the four season sunroom as well as covered rear porch, open deck, and salt water pool with new liner for a minimum of care for years to come.

The home itself offers a 2-car garage, but there is an additional garage that is 25′ x 42′ and high enough for a boat or RV or a dream workshop.  The second floor is completely floored for storage.

Set back from the road, this home is serene and private yet close to Fearrington Village and just minutes from grocery store and all other necessaries.
