Located in the "hub" of the Triangle, the home is roughly equidistant from TRP, Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill.

The entrance is grand. You first see the house rising above the trees and then across the expanse of the green side lawn with the red maple. A low-stone wall borders the large parking area. Pass through the covered stoop and you enter a two-story foyer/atrium that opens into the decorative marble-floored hall and the two story wall of windows.



The stone mason who built this as his personal home in 1994 was an imaginative craftsman and practical designer. The dramatic window wall is balanced by long halls up & down, the large loft and the many spaces that open to living room. The floorplan also provides intimate hide-a-ways and convenient storage including a walk-in 2nd floor attic.


The breakfast room has a bay window and the kitchen a corner window (above the sink), both overlooking the large backyard. There is room enough for the half-round children's table in front of the kitchen island (with a second sink and Corian counter top). Large pantry cabinets and an adjacent utility room with an outside entrance are especially practical. The dining room is at the end of the hall flanked by two stone columns.

Truly spectacular. The MBR opens onto the deck and has a large walk-in closet and built-in window seats. The 1st floor master bath includes a walk-in shower enclosed with glass blocks.

The upstairs octagonal room is now used as an office with a wrap-around desktop and built-in bookshelves. The flex space at the end of the hall is used as a family/play room and library. These bookshelves are negotiable. The 2nd and 3rd bedrooms and two tiled full baths are upstairs.



The American Tobacco Trail is a short walk away and leads to nearby Jordan Lake and adjacent conservation areas. Looking at the tax map, the land to the north and the west is also owned by Wake County. For more info on the Trail go to http://www.triangletrails.org/images/Map3-4-rules1.pdf.
