The great room features a gorgeous set of windows that looks out onto the property, vaulted ceilings, a stone fireplace and it is open to the kitchen and breakfast room.
The kitchen is amazing with arched doorways and molding, back-splash behind stove, stainless steel appliances, wooden cabinets, recessed lighting, chandeliers, and a granite topped center island with a small prep/vegetable sink.
The master suite is on the first floor and has an entry foyer, trey ceiling, private entrance to the deck, a large elegant bathroom with a walk in closet and flex space.

In The Neighborhood
I love where we are located. Our house is so convenient to everything but then you drive down the street and you are in a private cul-de-sac with nothing but woods and lake behind us. We really have the best of both worlds… city close by as well as the beauty of the country and lots of privacy.
My husband was the builder so were able to add a lot of things we wanted like custom moldings and cabinets. We love it when all the family can come and hang out by the pool; we have plenty of room for sure!
Living here also offers many opportunities to participate in local running groups in addition to being in close proximity to several workout facilities: the YMCA in Wakefield and The Factory every day for workout classes like Cycling, Yoga, Pilates etc. My favorite running group is the Wake Forest Area Runners and we run on various week nights from places like White Street Brewery, Wine 101, and Wakefield Wine. We also have been enjoying some rounds of golf at Heritage in Wake Forest.
We have a boat and enjoy the closeness of Falls Lake and can put our boat in several places not far from the house. If we just want to drop a line in the water it is just a short walk to the lake from our house through the woods to sit and fish and relax.
We love our local spots and everything is so close by.. schools across the street, entertainment just across the street, grocery store across the street. Restaurants are too numerous to name but some of our favorites are Wakefield Tavern (which is within walking distance!) and sushi restaurants Mizu’s and Hayashi. The good thing about where we live you can get to any restaurant in Wake Forest easily but also you can get to nice restaurants in North Raleigh as well.
