View from the Serenity Shelter

Extremely flexible floorplan – we love the fact that this home has two wings that pivot around the chef’s kitchen and luandry room/cooks pantry –  A Family Wing, and a Guest Wing. 

This home has such a good “soul”; the light is exhilarating: Tall glass, vaulted ceilings, unique floor plan, and very few square rooms!

The Guest Wing could accommodate multi-generational living – or a classroom for Zoom learning – or a home gym – or an amazing at home office – with a separate entry from the driveway, so colleagues and clients could visit without disturbing the privacy of the rest of the home.

Guest Room:

The Family Wing has 3 bedrooms – one of which is used as a stellar office, overlooking the landscaped backyard and pond.

The owners suite is at the very end of the hall – with vaulted ceilings, private balcony deck, walk-in closet, dressing area, shower room and separate tub. The owners’ bath is livable in its current state, but it would be fabulous with a sensitive modern renovation (price reflects the need for repairs to the jetted tub, fireplace gas logs replacement in living room,etc)

Kitchen! The heart of the home! Beautiful warm cherry cabinets, Wolf 6 burner range, Thermador range hood with food warming lights, KitchenAide built in fridge, built-in microwave and granite countertops. And not one, but TWO peninsulas!


The owners have quite a list of things they love about the home and the neighborhood. The house located on a quiet cul de sac lot on a large wooded lot (almost an acre!) on a sweet little pond maintained by the HOA. The community pool, tennis courts (and pickleball), basketball court, and community clubhouse is located just on the other side of the pond. Santa even makes a special trip to the neighborhood, on a firetruck!

House and Pond

The gardens are exceptionally lovely, something most of us wish we had, but never get around to creating! A home that welcomes nature in: A fish pond by the front walk, a screened porch, hardscaped walkways with gorgeous plantings, a deck running the length of the home, a balcony/deck off the owners bedroom, and a serenity shelter.

The previous owner created the concrete giant Squirrel sculpture, which conveys to the new owner. The current family has painted it whimsically, and Mr. Squirrel is waiting for your new artistic expression.

There is even a heated and cooled workshop, with an outdoor entrance at the rear of the home:

All this – and close to 540 for a speedy trip to the airport, RTP, Raleigh and Wake Forest.
