Special Features

Charming 1940’s one-story cottage at the end of a quiet side street within walking distance to UNC, downtown Chapel Hill, and Carrboro.  In 1980, well-known local architect, Dale Dixon, designed the expansion and renovation of this home.  Now it’s in move-in condition with freshly painted exterior and interior, rich oak hardwood floors in most rooms, skylight, many windows, and versatile spaces.  Comfortable living room with picture window overlooking the woods, solid wood paneling, and an impressive stone fireplace.  Adjoining the living room there is a cozy den.  A glass door in the den opens to the sunroom that has two walls of Marvin windows overlooking the woods and a windowed door leading to the deck.  Formal dining room with bay window.  Well-designed kitchen with solid wood cabinetry and a sunny breakfast nook.  Master suite with walk-in closet and tile bath with double vanity.  Two additional bedrooms – one with a wall of built-in bookcases and large closet could make a nice study.  One-car garage with 240v electric car charger, 2-3 additional outdoor parking spaces.  Partially floored attic.  The setting for this home has big trees, ground cover, a nearby stream, and total privacy since it backs onto a 17-acre protected, wooded property.  The garden (and house) have been pesticide-free for the last 21 years, and the property is a Certified Wildlife Habitat.  Young wrens, cardinals, and Cooper’s Hawks are raised in the natural setting every year.
