Franklin-Rosemary Historic District. This location is the best of both worlds with the convenience of an in-town location and an absolutely beautiful setting. The home sits on a private lot, surrounded by trees and established landscaping. Its gardens are filled with terraced flower beds, gravel pathways, garden walls, sculpture and a stone and brick patio. Inside the home the open floor plan is perfect for entertaining or time spent with family. The windows and high ceilings are an incredible experience and natural light is abundant. The entrance to the home is an ample foyer, with fireplace, leading to the living room. The living room has large windows spanning much of the space between floor and ceiling. These windows look out on the garden and the Wayne Trapp sculpture that is part of the home purchase. Ceilings in this room extend to the second story and there is more than ample space to hang an art collection. This space is both inspiring and relaxing. The living room also shares the dual-sided fireplace with the foyer. A family room with built-in cabinetry adjoins the living room and has a cathedral ceiling and another set of tall windows. A dining room is off the foyer and shares a coffered ceiling with the entry. The kitchen is spacious with ample cabinetry and countertop space. A breakfast area is also found in the kitchen. Adjacent to the kitchen and breakfast area is a space with custom built-in shelving and cabinetry, ideal for wine racks, display of decorative arts and the storage of outer wear. This area, with is windows and skylights, could be used as additional seating or as a work or hobby space. Access to the three-car garage and patio are through this area. The first floor master suite has large windows, two large walk-in closets, an office or exercise room and an en suite bath. This bath has a separate whirlpool tub and shower, dual sink vanity and a skylight. There are two generously sized bedrooms on the second level, each with a large walk-in closet and an en suite bath. The home was built by Lucy Carol Davis and great attention was paid to the details of the property. This home is situated on an east-west axis and has wide eaves. It gets extensive passive solar heat in winter and shade in summer. Because of this careful placement on the lot for solar heat and the insulating effects of the EFIS/stucco exterior, heating and cooling expenses are mitigated. The first floor of the home is a single level and can be accessed through the garage without using steps. This home has an exceptional floor plan, has space for entertaining both large and small groups and is located close to all that Chapel Hill has to offer yet still feels private and secluded. The kitchen and bathrooms are the original 1994 construction.
