Stunning Condoret Masterpiece on Over 4 Acres - Just Listed!

by LC for Masha Halpern

www.2411PickardMountainRoad.com

Known for his innovative creation of fascinating homes in Orange, Durham & Chatham Counties, Jon Condoret above all understood the power of intersecting his home designs with the beauty of Mother Nature. His homes are characterized by “bringing the outdoors in,” & it is this timeless vision that breathes heart, life & soul into 2411 Pickard Mountain Road.

Condoret was a master at placing nature’s majesty on a pedestal from inside a home, & this sprawling Hillsborough modernist abode is no exception. Its extensive use of glass bathes the interior in natural light & invites the surrounding forest in. As you drive up to the property, a curving brick walkway passes by an ornate water fountain & leads to the front porch & entry. The two-story foyer presents Condoret spiral staircase enfolded by stacked casement windows, the view through which can only be described as ethereal & leads to a fantastic retreat space upstairs. The floorplan opens to the soaring family room with access to the back deck & a wall of casement windows looking out to the wooded acreage beyond. A sunken, octagonal den with a wooden-beamed, turreted ceiling adjacent to the family room features hardwood flooring & beautiful wood built-ins with room for a TV & stereo set. Across the hall is a wet bar with cabinets, which hugs the formal dining room that itself is caressed with hardwoods & multiple casement windows for natural lightEntertaining will be a cinch! Your eyes will sparkle with joy when you see the newly renovated kitchen & breakfast area with hand-glazed terra cotta tile floors & wood stove (which works well!). Whether you claim amateur or novice cooking status, you will be enthralled with this kitchen’s bells & whistles. Featuring stainless steel appliances, Viking Professional Series 6-burner gas range with griddle, large granite-topped island with separate sink & above hanging pot rack, brand new honed granite countertops, walk-in pantry & cabinetry/storage in abundance - every detail has been accounted for! The owner’s utility room (wheelchair accessible) is hidden behind a pocket door with built-in cabinets, counter space & mop sink. Designed for family members with many needs, this home offers a main floor wheelchair-accessible full bath & a high-ceilinged home theater complete with remote-controlled blackout shades & wheelchair accessible doors, & also acts as the home’s third bedroom.

You will love the split bedroom floorplan for the Owner’s Suite! Hardwood floors continue throughout, private deck access, two large walk-in closets & a wall of built-in cabinets & drawers for your personal belongings. When you think master bath the word of the day is “NEW.” The luxuriously renovated master bath offers many brand new delights - new tile floors, deep jetted soaking tub, dual vanity & fixtures, makeup vanity amid built-ins, large walk-in shower with new glass door, skylight & water closet with bidet.

Meander the spiral staircase to the second level & you will find what we lovingly call the ‘business end of the house’ - an amazing space that offers you the flexibility of a private teen suite complete with two Murphy beds that quickly pop back in to beautiful custom cherry cabinetry; or create an amazing alternative space, a home office. Used this way, you can indulge yourself by reading in front of a wonderful fireplace. Take advantage of an additional full bath & great storage! Bedroom four is found in the finished lower level adjacent to a sitting area & full bath; this en- suite includes a second utility room - complete with washer & dryer space, outdoor access to lower level detached decks & lily pond - & is perfect for overnight or long-term guests!

There is so much of the natural world to admire at 2411 Pickard Mountain Road as it rests on 4+ wooded acres. The options for enjoying the views are vast, including a brick front porch overlooking the stunning front yard, a back deck attached to the home with built-in benches, two free-standing “California low” style decks, & a large stone patio. No matter where you are, the mountain-esque views are magical, giving the allusion of total seclusion when in reality you’re only minutes from downtown Chapel Hill, downtown Hillsborough & I-85/40.

*Additional items of interest

  • Three-car detached garage with ample workshop space. This garage also features additional storage via stairs to a second floor. 
  • Central vacuum system in the home
  •  Option to purchase an additional 4+ acre buildable home site for added privacy.

Masha Halpern attends invitation-only event for top luxury Realtors®

“Leaders in Luxury” event attracts real estate professionals from across North America

 

Masha Halpern of Keller Williams Realty in Chapel Hill joined over 100 top real estate professionals serving the upscale residential market who converged the first week of October in San Juan, Puerto Rico for The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing’s annual Leaders in Luxury (LIL) conference.

According to Halpern, the exclusive event is a once-a-year, invitation-only educational and networking opportunity for real estate professionals who handle million and multi-million dollar homes and estates. “This prestigious conference provides cutting-edge information on what’s happening in the luxury market segment, offers insights on best practices in the business, and creates valuable networking opportunities,” said Halpern. “I come home with information and ideas to help me deliver superior service to my clientele.”

Leaders in Luxury attendance is limited to proven professionals in the luxury home niche,” said Laurie Moore-Moore, Founder of The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing, the event host. “This gives LIL attendees the opportunity to build an exclusive network of contacts focused on the upscale residential industry, while sharing ideas with the best in the business. Since competency is the key to working successfully with the luxury buyer and seller,” added Moore-Moore, “LIL is designed to provide attendees with important knowledge and insights, giving them a competitive edge in meeting the needs of the very affluent.”

Leaders in Luxury’s keynote speakers included Krista Neher, the CEO of Boot Camp Digital, international speaker, and author of the bestselling Social Media Field Guide, Visual Social Media Marketing, and the textbook, Social Media Marketing: A Strategic Approach. Krista is a social media pioneer; creating one of the first successful corporate Twitter strategies and corporate blogs before “social media” was even a recognized term. Our second keynote speaker was Christopher Kai, an entrepreneur, consultant, speaker, author, and homeless youth advocate. He has just published his third book, Big Game Hunting: Networking with Billionaires, Executives, and Celebrities. Numerous top luxury agents from the U.S. and Canada participated in presentations and panel discussions.
