Property Description

Step into an era gone by as you approach the Georgian-style home at 117 Glenhaven Drive. Classic architect features such as full brick exterior with windows marked by keystones, elegant columns crowned by balusters of the upper front porch, and double chimneys give a hint to the luxury that awaits inside.

Interior design details include wide planks of heart pine for the main living area floors, ten-foot ceilings on the main level, and beautiful classic light fixtures throughout.

The expansive Foyer begins at the French doors and showcases design features such as double crown molding, paneled wainscotting, recessed lighting to showcase art, and arched entryways into both the formal Living and Dining rooms. The staircase is minimized, yet easily accessible from both the foyer and back hallway.

Both Living and Dining rooms provide an elegant place to entertain your guests with features such as double crown molding and chair rail. Each room has its own stand-out feature: a fireplace with custom woodwork on the mantel in the living room and a ceiling medallion with designer fixture in the dining room.

Making entertaining a breeze, a beverage center is located just between the formal living room and the family room. Serve drinks and horderves to company conveniently from this space. Guests also have an elegant powder room at their disposal with beadboard paneling, Toile wallpaper, and a pedestal sink.

Consideration has also been given to family living with the spacious family room opening to the kitchen. Cozy up by the fireplace with a stone hearth & surround while taking in the views of the back porch and mature hardwoods beyond. Built-in cabinets & shelves make it easy to access books and games in this relaxed space.

Nearby, the Kitchen offers another gathering place with a breakfast room and a bartop peninsula counter space. Cherry cabinets along with a pantry offer plenty of storage. Granite countertops & tile backsplash add to the aesthetics. This kitchen is set-up with all the tools for meal preparation - stainless steel appliances and a butcher block countertop island.

Enjoy reading the morning paper or asking the kids about school in the breakfast room. This space is made for quiet moments or informal conversation while offering access to the rear covered porch with spectacular views of the back lawn and forest surround.

As you make your way upstairs, you’ll notice attention was given to details even in the stairway. The wide wooden steps are encased by a beautiful wooden rail, chair rail & wainscotting.

Find your retreat in the Owner’s Suite, with spaces that help you relax and comfort you. The Master Bedroom’s trey ceiling adds depth to the room while the triple windows provide natural light and views of the back of the property.

Through an arched entryway, you will find the large walk-in closet with built-in ironing board and the Master Bath. This is the spa treatment you’ve been waiting for. The vaulted ceiling looks over the limestone style tile floor, jetted tub, and walk-in tile shower with seat. Separate sinks and vanity space are connected by a vanity counter.

The Owner’s Suite also provides for outdoor relaxation. A private covered balcony porch with beadboard ceiling and ceiling fan overlooks the vast backyard and mature hardwood border.

Bedrooms 2 & 3 each have plenty of natural light and share a “Homework Room/Study” in between. Built-in desks with upper shelves & cabinetry is the perfect place to do homework or work on projects.

Bedroom 2 has it’s own private bath while Bedroom 3 shares a bath with double sink vanity and cast iron tub with tile surround with Bedroom 4.

The fourth bedroom has an arched opening to a sitting area - just the place for a bookshelf and large reading chair.

There are no limits to your imagination with the finished third floor rooms. A bonus room with vaulted ceiling and built-in shelves is perfect for viewing media or playing games. Additionally a “hobby” room is tucked away for all of your crafty endeavors. The third floor also has a bathroom so that your climb up and down the stairs is minimized.

Convenience is key to the well-thought out floor plan. The laundry room has ceramic tile flooring, a utility sink, and cabinets & hooks. A mud room is located between the utility room and garage, a great place to remove shoes, backpacks & coats.

The 2-car Garage is side-entry, minimizing its effect on the look of the home from the front. It has finished walls and ceiling, and is closed to the kitchen for easy unloading of groceries.

Outdoor spaces include the covered back porch with beadboard ceiling and a grill terrace built in 2007 - barbecue anyone?

The extensive landscaping of the home includes a six-zone irrigation system, landscape lighting, mature plantings, and fig, pear & peach trees.

Venture through the unique community of Southern Village and you will find a plethora of restaurants, shops, professional services, plus a movie theater. There are also community pool & tennis courts available. Located minutes south of UNC Hospitals and UNC-Chapel Hill, this community feels like a get-away while providing easy access to Chapel Hill, Carrboro & Durham.
