Harwell Hamilton Harris was one of the true mid-century masters and during his tenure at NCSU was the architect of several homes in our area. One of his most stunning examples sits on a cul-de-sac lot in the heart of Coker Hills, one of Chapel Hill’s most desired neighborhoods. 305 Clayton is a one level custom designed modernist home that’s more than just a house, it’s a work of art you get to live in! Designed for entertaining, the sprawling home greets you with a formal foyer where you get your first hint that this is something extraordinary with the view onto the patio courtyard that the home is designed around. Off in one direction is the formal dining room which leads to the fully renovated architect re-designed kitchen, featuring granite, stainless, custom cabinetry, prep sink, dual ovens and room for four at the counter. Heading in the other direction down to the living room Harris’s vision remains largely untouched with huge offset brick wood-burning fireplace, L shaped living area, cathedral ceiling and redwood walls. Continue down this side to the master with en suite bath and walk-in closet adjacent to the office or nursery, depending on your preference. The other direction takes you down a glass hallway overlooking the courtyard and connecting to three secondary bedrooms, two additional full baths, bonus room, and additional patio overlooking the rear of the lot. Outside is a garden shed and garage that is large enough for two cars but has been historically outfitted and used as a workshop. Extensive landscaping and native plants surround the home and it’s a short walk to Estes Elementary or the Chapel Hill Library which is accessed by a nature trail.
