Welcome to 814 Christopher Road!


Since its inception in the 1930s, Chapel Hill’s historic Greenwood subdivision has been home to many academic & literary talents, including author of the acclaimed memoir “The Southern Part of Heaven,” William Meade Prince. The single level rustic beauty that is 814 Christopher Road is apart of this special subdivision, & now is your opportunity to be entwined with the Greenwood heritage.

From Christopher Road the property is hidden from view behind a tall privacy fence, but once you turn into the circular drive your eyes will lock onto the landscaped front yard & the sprawling white, black-shuttered ranch featuring a handsome new metal roof. Your melted heart will want to linger on the inviting rocking chair front porch to watch the sun set through the trees.

As you enter the foyer, the freshly painted kitchen with refinished hardwood flooring lies to the right. This galley style kitchen features a large picture window with a fabulous view to the front porch & yard, breakfast nook, laminate counters, oak cabinetry, & brand new stainless steel appliances. Walk the next room over to find yourself in a living room offering wood floors, stunning views of the back yard, & a masonry gas log fireplace that serves as an AMAZING focal point of the room. An expansive entry from the living room welcomes you into the large ready-for-entertaining dining room, which is also accessible through two sets of French doors that lead to a window-filled sunroom. Featuring two sets of French doors, as well as a beautifully painted black wood floor, two ceiling fans & a wide-stretched view of the back yard & pool, the sunroom could very well become your favorite spot in this home!

Meander the hall from the dining room to a tiled laundry room with separate sink, the fifth bedroom, & a large owner’s suite complete with hardwoods, walk-in closet, bath with walk-in shower, sound-proof door & French doors that allow you separate access to the back patio. The opposite end of the home accommodates bedrooms two through four – all with hardwoods – & a full guest bath.

The special qualities found in this 1950s Greenwood ranch extend outside to the 0.87-acre lot where multiple outdoor retreats will be yours to enjoy. Accessible from the living room, a two-tiered deck provides an excellent view to the well-maintained back yard & adds plenty of space for rest & relaxation. Across the boardwalk & inside the gated area of the back yard can be found a concrete patio, oversized pool deck with a 20,000-gallon pool, garden area, & one of three wired storage sheds with motion lights.

This historic Greenwood subdivision is minutes from I-40, UNC’s campus, & some of the best schools in the district. It is here that your heart & soul can call home; let your creativity unwind, & your life’s story unfold.
