Welcome to 1205 Highland Trail!


Resting on the outskirts of Chapel Hill in the blissfully secluded subdivision of Highland Forest is this stunning transitional with undertones of rustic, yet sophisticated, beauty. Set off the quiet cul-de-sac road that is Highland Trail, this home lies in the center of a wooded, private acre & offers the allusion of living distant from city life. 

Enter through the covered front porch into an open, freshly painted foyer that features a wrought-iron staircase & powder room with marble floors with octagonal picture window. A spacious living room is highlighted by a gas log prefab fireplace with hearth featuring Slate Inlay, newly refinished hardwood floors, & a triple window ushering in natural light. An arched entryway leads to the formal dining room featuring two art nooks & an oversized picture window that grants an astounding view of the picturesque back yard. A second arched entryway separates the dining room from the eat-in kitchen, where such accents as subway tile backsplash, stylish pendant light over a porcelain sink, & oak cabinetry make a grand display. The kitchen is really special & features a new stainless refrigerator, counters accented by ‘bull-nose’ edging, a pantry, under-cabinet lighting, range hood over electric stainless stove, large washer/dryer closet, & sliding glass doors to the newly built custom deck.

And a great surprise … hardwood floors on the second level, including the three bedrooms. Unique to the master bedroom, a soaring vaulted ceiling & recently updated master bath with tile surround shower & deep-soaking garden tub, Palladian window, granite-topped dual vanity, water closet & walk-in closet with wood built-in shelves. The master bedroom also includes a third level loft with new carpet & pad; the versatility of this extra room allows for multiple uses, & offers access to the unfinished attic. Passing by a full guest bath with marble floor & single oak-cabinet vanity, step down the hardwood- floored hall to bedroom two where natural light creates a happy space. Bedroom three has gentle light through two corner windows, ceiling fan & bamboo floors – the perfect baby’s room!

Savor the fleeting days of summer on the brand new custom deck featuring steps that lead to concrete & cobblestone patios & raised garden beds. Both children & pets will enjoy the half-acre fenced back yard with its stone outcropping arranged like an obstacle course around the deck & patio area. This truly is paradise for gardeners & nature lovers alike!

This is the perfect opportunity to enjoy a Chapel Hill address & low Chatham county taxes. 1205 Highland Trail is only minutes from Fearrington Village, Southern Village, The Lumina Theater, downtown Chapel Hill, UNC Hospital, & Hwy 64 to Raleigh.
