Property Description

Conveniently located in the Midtown neighborhood of Georgetowne, outside the city limits, this home gives you quick and ready access to everything you need, including The Pointe at Barclay with movies and restaurants, shopping, the new Harris Teeter complex, Novant Health Medical Center, and doctors' offices. All the work has been done for you in this tastefully-updated all brick traditional custom-built home, with manicured landscaping and an impressive portico leading through the newly-installed factory-painted front door with beautiful leaded glass panels. Inside you are met with a spacious entryway featuring high ceilings, wainscoting, and exquisite crown molding. The designer-inspired coastal color palette and open dining room adjacent to the entryway, as well as the large Great Room with volume-ceiling and natural gas ignitor for the cozy wood burning fireplace, gives off a more casual living vibe than one might expect. As you enter the large kitchen/breakfast/sitting area (currently used as a bar but could be used as a sitting area or kid's play area off the kitchen), you will see the custom wood cabinets have been updated with knobs and pulls and painted by a local designer to match the exquisite granite countertop. A glass tile backsplash pulls it all together. With numerous cabinets and a walk-in pantry, storage is plentiful. Right off the kitchen is the large screened in porch with skylights leading out to a fenced-in paver patio with firepit and lots of space for playing, planting or just relaxing. The storage shed has electricity and there is a natural gas Napoleon grill with power to complete your outdoor experience. Back inside, there is beautiful oak hardwood flooring throughout the entire lower living space. All bathrooms have been updated with new flooring; sinks, granite countertops, cherrywood vanities, and fixtures; the master bath shower has new accented large tile with stone flooring and beautiful French shower doors; it is also pre-plumbed ready for you to install a standalone tub if you desire. During the 2018-2019 renovation of this home, 938 square feet of new living space was added to the second floor. This expansion provided a bedroom with a large walk-in closet; walk-in tile shower; a dry kitchenette; living room or recreational room; a walk-in pantry; a FROG for an office, home gym, or craft room; and a large conditioned storage room with shelving, increasing the conditioned living space to over 4,000 sq. ft. The flooring on the second floor is tongue & groove luxury vinyl planking with antimicrobial cork backing. Many protections and mechanicals were put in place during the renovation, including new garage doors with 130mph wind rating; whole-house natural gas-powered Generac generator; storm protection for all of the newly-installed windows (roll downs, accordion, and functional colonial shutters); and to improve the safety and water quality of the domestic water, a whole-house water treatment system (reverse osmosis) was installed, along with a water softening system, which also prevents mineral build up on appliances. A Rinnai natural gas-powered tankless hot water heater with efficient circulator system for hot water on demand was installed. The security system has outdoor cameras in key locations. The crawlspace has been cleaned with a new liner and industrial humidifier with monitoring system installed for optimum health. Termite bond in place and transferrable. There is more to share about this remarkable home. We welcome your visit.
