This special home is a true gem, full of thoughtful details both inside and out and marrying quality and beauty in a perfect location on the edge of the campus of the University of North Carolina.  A covered front porch welcomes you with a beautifully made custom door complete with Prairie-style glass details.

The custom moldings of the door are carried into the living room trim and special touches on the living room built-ins with an exceptional attention to detail. A generous wall of windows opens the view from the living room to the private and peaceful back yard. Hardwood floors enhance the natural beauty of the room and a stately fireplace with gas logs adds a touch of classic grace and modern comfort.

A formal dining room is spacious and suited for a variety of uses.  Large windows allow for abundant light, and the craftsman-style sconces add an artistic touch. Built-in shelving and cabinets connect with an exposed brick wall to add detail and visual interest.

The kitchen/family room addition was created with all modern amenities such as quality maple cabinetry with granite countertops and breakfast bar, a gas range and stainless hood, built-in refrigerator and built-in seating banquette for informal dining or home projects.  The ceilings are vaulted to add space and dimension, and skylights open up the room to allow gentle sunlight to stream through the trees.

The maple cabinets carry into the family room with entertainment storage and a built-in desk area.  The woodburning fireplace is graced by a modern surround and mantel treatment, and large picture windows including a graceful arched transom and sconces add both beauty and light.

The master bedroom has been expanded and modernized, with a huge walk-in closet and luxury bath featuring a large soaking tub and separate shower, double vanity and abundant windows.

The secondary bedrooms also feature large windows, and one features an ensuite bath.  The second bedroom is served by the guest bath in the hall.

The screened porch is a treasure, with a vaulted ceiling and ceiling fan and plenty of space for all kinds of activities or just lounging on a warm afternoon.  Views of the surrounding trees provide a sense of peace and tranquility.  The expansive patio provides additional outdoor living space.  A 10 x 10 garden shed is an added treat.

A sense of place come together here with sensible, elegant updates – a wonderful place to call home.
