This home is a tale of two houses with a traditional exterior in front and a contemporary exterior in the back. The home is graced by tall mature trees and lush landscaping making it a quiet country-like retreat that is just off Franklin St. and within spitting distance to the University of North Carolina (UNC) and shops, Whole Foods, TJ's, and more. The modern back addition offers two sound-proofed offices, a waiting room, full bath and a separate entrance giving you the freedom to work at home in this gorgeous tree house' or use the space as an in-law or guest suite. There is also a second kitchen and patio off the second entrance for additional privacy. The house offers 4 bedrooms and 4.5 baths which were updated in 2001 and are as lovely as they are functional... the faucets in the powder room and hall bathroom are by Grohe and the sinks are by Porcher; the faucets in the master bath are by Delta. The spacious back deck offers lovely wooded views with no other house in sight. It is the perfect place for outdoor entertaining or just relaxing and enjoying nature. They say never to judge a book by its cover' and it is certainly true with this one of a kind home. The contemporary addition brings an open and airy feeling to the original home and its traditional features. You'll definitely want to take a look at this one!
