From the moment you spot this majestic brick property through the trees as you wind around the corner of Redbud Lane you know you have arrived at a very special place. Situated on nearly an acre and backing up to the Chapel Hill Resource Conservation District, this stately manor home with all-brick exterior and architectural trim is a paragon of modern style and comfort combined with the stately details of a previous gilded age. A two-story entry with soaring ceilings is somehow cozy and expansive at the same time, welcoming you into the home with warmth and grace. As you enter the living room you are immediately struck by the beauty of the marble surrounding the gas fireplace and the architectural moldings of the mantel. The graceful arched opening with bookcases divides the living room from the formal dining room yet provides easy communication and flow between the rooms.

The kitchen is a masterpiece of style and function, with ceramic tile floors, maple cabinets, granite countertops with a well-placed breakfast bar that is perfect for kids with homework or friends and acquaintances to congregate and admire the cook’s creations. Two pantries provide abundant storage for all kitchen goods, and a fantastic kitchen control area with desk and drawers lines the edge of the breakfast room.

Large homes can feel overwhelming and cold, but this home is warm and welcoming in every way. Cathedral ceilings lift and expand the family room while the wood-burning stone fireplace anchors the space. Decorative windows permit beautiful views of the private wooded backyard and a wall of bookshelves provides space for all of the family games and mementos.

One of the bedrooms is is tucked away in a private corner of the first floor in the perfect location for a guest room or office. Three secondary bedrooms can be found on the second floor, served by a jack and jill bath with updated cabinets and solid surface tops. The master is an exquisite retreat, with trey ceiling, gas fireplace and updated bath featuring cherry cabinets, dual sinks, luxury whirlpool tub with corner windows and treetop views, shower with copper fixtures and a huge walk-in closet and private commode. But still, there is more! The third floor offers a recreation room with game and bar areas as well as a second space that can serve as an exercise room, office, or sixth bedroom with full bath. Closet space abounds, with walk-in attic nooks for additional storage.

Outdoor living spaces include the beautifully constructed screened porch, with vaulted ceilings, skylights and built-in benches, and large deck. The two-car garage features carriage doors and is tastefully placed to the side of the home.

This is a home for a lifetime… and now it can be yours.
