This sweet 3002-square foot, classic southern-style home with farm house influences sits peacefully on 10 acres in the Chapel Hill/Carrboro School District. The home exudes warmth and charm and includes modern conveniences. The winding driveway and wooded lot offers privacy and yet it is only 10 minutes from Chapel Hill and Franklin Street. A footpath and bridle easement run along the back of the property. Set in this stunning natural setting, 1420 Preston Spring combines custom stack stone around the house and driveway, hand-laid stone path leading to the front and back, and an immaculately maintained exterior. Fiber cement siding and Trex decking are low-maintenance materials, perfect for the wooded lot. The gracious covered front porch welcomes family and friends and the old-fashioned doorbell maintains the integrity of the farmhouse feel. Inside, the hardwood floors are 5-inch hickory planks with a walnut stain and there is new carpet and pad throughout. The stone fireplace is a true conversation piece with guests as it reaches to the top of the cathedral ceiling. The antique vanity that's converted into a sink in the second downstairs bathroom is another unique feature. The formal dining room overlooks the front porch and has easy access to the kitchen. Also on the first level is a flex room or bedroom with walk-in closet. The stunning master bedroom with walk-in closet opens to the back deck and has a view of the pond. But the real WOW factor of the master is the recently renovated master bath with a stand-alone tub, ultra-special walk-in shower and a granite counter with dual sinks. The kitchen includes: all stainless appliances, granite countertops, birch cabinets with antique nickel pulls, and lots of interesting storage spots to keep the kitchen clutter-free. The breakfast room overlooks the back deck and pond and is that perfect spot for morning coffee. While the second floor has two additional bedrooms and full bath, there is a special "kids" room that is prefect for play or reading and it connects to the bonus with half bath and access to lower level. The laundry closet is conveniently located near the kitchen and the oversized garage completes 1420 Preston Spring. Take time to stroll the grounds and take a peek at the custom pond with a cascading water feature. Welcome home to McAlister Field and living the good life.
