Welcome to the most dreamy piece of property in Zebulon! The circular drive leads to an all brick, executive home on 3.45 serene acres, horses allowed!
Abundant sunlight and 0pen living spaces. The kitchen offers such a beautiful backdrop for your family life.
The main floor boasts a beautiful 2 story foyer with a palladium window and 10 ft beveled glass french style entrance doors. A large dining room with trey ceiling opens from the foyer. The 2 story living room has a gas fireplace and floor to ceiling windows overlooking the grounds and the sunsets beyond. Envision yourself sitting and relaxing at the end of the day or on the weekend!
The open kitchen and great room area with gas fireplace invites the family to gather for meals, homework, or TV time.
The attraction of our location is definitely the peace and quiet. We have plenty of privacy and space between the other homes in the neighborhood while just a short 20 minute drive to Raleigh. With the back and side yard area our private retreat, we still have access to the neighborhood across the street from the driveway entrance thus allowing the opportunity for childhood playmates and neighborhood friends.
My husband and I custom designed our house plan with our architect and my husband, being a builder, built it himself. This traditional, classic style was the perfect house to raise our 2 daughters – allowing plenty of room for them to entertain friends in their own bonus room or outside in the large yard space without infringing too much on our own space.
We designed our home with an open floor plan that allowed easy flow within the main living rooms, our downstairs master suite, and our home office wing. We used energy efficient Pella windows (the 2 story living room has floor to ceiling windows that overlook the back yard and fields beyond), true hardwood flooring, and newly renovated granite counter tops.
The office wing has a separate exterior entrance for clients but it is attached to the rest of the house for our easy access. We also provided a large parking area. The office/multipurpose wing is about 1500 sq ft and has 4 separate rooms with an additional large room with a 12 ft ceiling. This large room offers a window seat and a set of french doors for another exterior entrance into the back yard. So many possibilities!
The second floor of the main house includes two bedrooms with a Jack and Jill bath, an easy access laundry chute, and one bedroom with a private bath.
There is a loft area that offers a quiet escape for reading or exercise, and a bonus room large enough for a pool table and a separate TV viewing area. Under the eaves in the bonus room are very 3 usable and accessible separate storage areas.
It’s a wonderful place to entertain, indoors and out. The large multilevel deck opens onto the grassy backyard allowing plenty of room for a tented event. Park as many cars as you need in the parking area to accommodate your guests.
The social rooms open with french doors to easily access the deck area and rear yard. An active family will have plenty of space to play, ride bikes and four wheelers or to just be kids!
If you are looking to retreat – to catch your breath and just enjoy the view, the back deck with its lighted pergola gives you that escape. Offering a serene and peaceful respite from a busy day – it overlooks the half acre back yard and the field beyond it; nothing in sight but the beauty of North Carolina countryside and skies. You have a front row seat to the most stunning sunsets!
