  One of a kind "country compound". Located in the very heart of Morrisville, this unique property is just a short ride to CISCO, RDU airport, Weston Parkway.


Historic Crossroads Village and Rural Heritage Park. The Morrisville Town Center Plan, dated January 2007, describes the possibility of creating an historic district and heritage park. The district would include the nearby Page House, ca 1800, (above right) and other older homes. The Rural Heritage Park would be placed on the vacant land across the street. More information on the Morrisville Town Center plan is available at www.ci.morrisville.nc.us or by calling Ben Hitchings in the Planning Department at 919-463-6196.

On September 22, the house marked by the small blue circle will be burned down by the Morrisville Fire Department to make way for the Pugh House (blue circle) to be moved to the site. Click on the map to download a larger version.

A bath house in the garden of Eden. A hot tub is nested in the old brick out building next to the BBQ pit, patio and custom designed deck. Lush and extraordinarily private, the 0.35 acre fenced lot includes 2 swings and a gently burbling waterfall and pond. Water is not a problem. You are hooked up to town water and sewer plus the old well still works.

Something old and something new. A Mark Gill stained glass front door nicely accents the refinished floors and stripped wood trim work throughout the downstairs that has 10' high ceilings. Upgrades include the kitchen, a new master bath w/heated tile floor, a finished attic with full bath, gas logs, new windows, roof, zoned gas heat/air, wiring, plumbing to the street and much more.

Artists, contractors, sculptors, hobbyists, preservationists, auto buffs, geeks. The 1600 square foot barn/garage has 4 wired rooms plus an adjacent carport with a sunken concrete pit for auto repair.


The first of the spaces is now used as a rec room with a wood stove plus a high efficiency gas heat and wall mounted AC. Steps lead to a similar space upstairs that has several boarded over windows.
