New on the Market - 308 Rossburn Way, Chapel Hill!

by Masha Halpern

Welcome to 308 Rossburn Way, Chapel Hill!

Built in 1999 by Zinn Design Build, this beautiful 4 bedroom, 3 bath home is move-in ready.   Featuring an open layout, an abundance of natural light, spacious bedrooms and comfortable elegance, it is sure to impress.

A cute porch with brick edging; paneled ceiling and tapered columns highlighted by brick piers set the scene. Enter into a two-story foyer offering select red oak hardwood floors. The hardwoods flow throughout the main level living areas and stairway leading to the second floor. Adjacent to the foyer sits the living and dining room with two piece crown molding and custom wall tones. 

Opening from the dining area is an amazing kitchen. It presents sparkling white cabinetry, glass accent doors; roll out shelving; under counter cutting board; knife holding drawer; casement window above the sink & island with bar overhang. Stainless appliances combine brilliantly with the gorgeous granite counter tops and brushed nickel fixtures. A touch of sophistication is achieved with a tumbled marble tile backsplash with accent tiles laid on the diagonal. Enjoy added storage with a great walk-in pantry hosting with extensive shelving.

A vaulted ceiling with center beam brings the eye upward in the gorgeous family room. The gas log fireplace has a handsome mosaic tile surround and custom wood mantle with fluted detailing and television niche making it the focal point of the room. A wall of three windows with custom triangular transom and glass door leading to the screened porch allows for plenty of sunlight to embrace this space.

The main level also offers a nice bedroom with crown molding and en suite bath with tile surround shower, vanity and double lever chrome faucet fixtures.

After a long day, relax in the spacious owner’s suite featuring a vaulted ceiling and tons of natural light. The master bath has ceramic tile flooring, jetted soaking tub and shower surround; shower seat; separate sinks with chrome double-lever cross handle plumbing fixtures, and separate water closet.

This home also has a great third level with bonus room. It provides eave storage access, window seat and an angled ceiling. The bonus room would also make a wonderful private space for an office or teen.

Last but not least, an expansive screened porch with access from the family room, affords charming views of the fenced garden.

Whether enjoying family time, entertaining or just relaxing….this residence is sure to be a winner!

New on the Market - 116 Glenmore Road!

by Masha Halpern

Welcome to 116 Glenmore Road!

A gorgeous curb appeal and inviting front porch will set your expectation before you step inside this lovely home. Fall in love with the details. A freshly painted interior, gleaming hardwood floors, beautiful wainscoting and a wrought iron staircase.  Arched doorways carry you from formal living room to dining room. Natural light gently consumes this space through a sizable window adding to the warmth of the room. Adjacent to these formal areas is a stunning gourmet kitchen. It features black appliances, electric full size smooth top stove, granite counters, custom tile back-splash, 42 inch oak cabinetry and work- island breakfast bar with ample storage. Triple pendant lighting accent this brilliantly!

Enjoy views of the beautifully landscaped backyard in the light and bright breakfast nook through bay windows. It serves as a great casual dining space. The focal point of the family room is a gas log fireplace with custom detailed mantle that’s PERFECT for a flat screen television or your favorite painting. Dimmable sconce lighting is situated neatly on either side of the mantel adding to its distinctive design. Entertaining here will be a breeze with this great room concept. Multiple windows will draw your eye to the backyard that can be easily accessed through a French door. A guest suite or home office “if it pleases you” offers a private full bath. A large workspace and an abundance of cabinetry will make the main floor laundry room a real pleasure. Three generously sized bedrooms plus a master suite are located upstairs. The master offers a vaulted ceiling & fan, a decorative ledge, and spa- like bath featuring custom double vanity, separate tile shower and large soaking tub.

Entertaining is a joy in the backyard! A Two-Tiered custom deck, tumbled brick patio and gorgeously landscaped backyard is reminiscent of a private mountain retreat.

Parkside neighborhood is located in a prime location near Homestead Park, I-40, The Senior Center, UNC, Shopping, Theaters, and much more.
