Tucked away in a quiet corner of Glendale, a classic old Chapel Hill neighborhood, is this recently constructed cottage style home surounded by trails and part of the Chapel Hill greenway system. This is an incredible location, just 1.5 miles from the heart of downtown Chapel Hill and less than a mile walk to University Mall. The apartment is completely separated from the main home, affording a wide variety of uses from nanny suite to income apartment.
The home features an open floor plan, with a true great room and wide open living spaces. A mahogany door with transom and sidelight welcomes you into the home where you are immediately struck by the expansive space and the views through the sunroom to the forest beyond. A graceful column and low wall separates the dining room from the rest of the living area, and a convenient dining room lighted alcove provides space for a hutch or grandmother?s china cabinet. With 9′ ceilings and beautiful hardwood floors, the space is at once airy yet grounded in natural beauty.
A powder room is conveniently located at the entry, with a top of the line Kohler commode and contemporary vanity with vessel sink. Sconces provide subtle lighting. A walk-in coat closet provides plenty of storage for coats and other belongings.
The living area features a gas fireplace with marble surround and built-in bookshelves. The adjacent sunroom has windows on three sides overlooking the treetops of the Chapel Hill town greenways. Plantation shutters provide privacy as well as beauty. The sunroom opens to the deck which overlooks lovely weeping willows.
