This transitional home – a modification of a popular plan by Homes By Dickerson – provides an ideal layout and is nicely situated on a private cul-de-sac. Originally built in 1991, it’s been meticulously updated with timeless features.
Located in Salisbury Park, a boutique enclave of charming homes in Stonehenge, on the edge of Midtown in North Raleigh, residents enjoy the close proximity to I-540 and the convenience of the area’s best schools, parks, and amenities. You’ll also find Harris Teeter, Starbucks, and a variety of restaurants right up the street.
As you enter the house, you’ll notice the beautifully detailed front door, fabulous pendant light, gleaming hardwood floors, and the decorative columns that separate the open living room from the entry. Connecting to this space is a dining room that seats 10, which has a big bay window and a whimsical crystal chandelier that all will admire.
The kitchen, which has a breakfast area that seats 6, has a wall of windows overlooking the fenced backyard and spacious deck, a limestone floor, stainless appliances, black granite countertops, and an abundance of good lighting and storage. The adjacent family room has bookcases flanking a brick fireplace, a wall of windows overlooking the backyard, and a door leading to the deck for seamless entertaining.
Upstairs, the private living areas reflect the same level of quality, while the master suite encompasses the entire rear of the house. Truly an owners retreat. His and Her closets are each fitted with California Closet systems. The bathroom is indulgent. Every detail has been artfully chosen, from the beautiful pale blue marble vanity, the custom glass window surrounding the corner Jacuzzi tub, to the door handles with coordinating designer hardware.
That there is a large bonus room with laundry, a full walk-up attic that could easily become anything you want, two more bedrooms, and a bathroom with double sinks set in a Crema Marfil vanity, truly makes this place special.
As for the non-sexy parts, they’re equally impressive. The house now features a sealed crawl space with dehumidifier; a roof replaced in 2014 with premium cedar shakes called “Heavies”, copper flashing and breather strips; new double-hung energy efficient tilt-out windows with screens installed in 2018; a commercial grade water heater installed in 2017; both HVAC systems replaced in 2016 & 2018; new deck rebuilt in 2017; exterior trim upgraded and the entire house was painted in 2018. And that’s just the major stuff. This house has been meticulously maintained.
When it comes right down to it, the purchase of a home is more than just bricks and mortar. You are looking to enjoy a lifestyle that you have always dreamed about. With easy access to Wake County’s fantastic amenities and the natural beauty of the greater Triangle, this home can make your dreams become reality.
