Property Description

Welcome to 811 Old Mill Road!


811 Old Mill Road rests in scenic Greenwood, one of Chapel Hill’s oldest & most distinguished neighborhoods.  Cushioned from the road by a gracious front yard sprinkled with hardwood trees, this mid-century classic offers a twist! – All THE BEST comforts of a modern updated home!

Camellia, rhododendron, rose, nandina & holly bushes frame your walk to a welcoming covered front porch flanked by aged wood columns.  Just behind the front door embellished with an ornate door accessory are the home’s foyer & living room featuring updated Mahogany-stained hardwood floors, eggshell-white walls, recessed lighting, wood-burning, granite surround focal-point fireplace & an expansive window that provides a panoramic view to the front yard.  The beauty of this space is that an abundance of natural light catches your eye & draws you in to the main hub & life of this home!  Continue through the living room & in to a charming breakfast alcove that includes contemporary fixtures & built-in seating with easy-close drawers underneath.  Seamless & sensible, the spaces in this home blend easily in to one another.  Attached to the alcove is a magnificent chef’s kitchen & adjacent dining room highlighting a soaring ceiling with skylights, windows & recessed lighting galore.  Custom built-in pantry & hidden spice cabinet, bar sink & wine storage, stereo surround & an oversized floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace with rustic mantle & a hearth made of “Absolute granite” delight the senses with texture & function.  The kitchen is equipped with a professional chef’s hanging pot rack, 6-burner gas range & griddle complete with pasta faucet, high ceiling range hood, easy-pull/close drawers, & jumbo island with silestone countertops & built-in microwave.  To add a touch of historical nostalgia, perfect placement of a “farm-style“ recessed sink in this generously sized working counter ensures THE best cooking & dining experience every day!

The hall from the dining room includes a powder room & entry to both the utility room & unfinished basement.  The utility room includes built-in cabinets for tons of extra storage, stainless steel mop sink, & access to the back yard & unfinished walk-up, floored attic with great storage or additional room potential (lighting & electric are already in place!).  Although unfinished, the basement is spacious, includes electrical, & is ready to be completed adding to the experience of truly fine living this home offers!

The three bedrooms are located in the north wing of the home.  With a perfect view to the camellia bushes & vine overhang just outside the windows, the master bedroom emits an aura of tranquility & features hardwoods, recessed lighting, & a beautiful master bath that includes two separate marble-topped vanities, tiled walk-in shower, private water closet & a large walk-in closet with built-in shelving.  The second & third bedrooms each contain wood floors, ceiling fan & access to the Jack ‘n Jill bathroom featuring a gorgeous tiled floor, marble-topped vanity, recessed lighting & a tiled tub/shower.

As the warmer months spring upon us, just open the windows so the outdoors will beckon you to one of many serene outdoor spaces.  Here are some of the special out-door spaces at 811 Old Mill Road:

  • A 14.9x16.5 deck with built-in seating is accessible from the dining & kitchen area.
  • The Two-car carport draped in vine overlay that is attached both to the home & a large storage building just screams to be someone’s artist studio or playhouse!
  • A Stunning rock path from the front sidewalk that leads you to the gated side yard.  This space is a wonderful area for afternoon tea, BBQ, a quick game of football, or a wonderful space to romp with the family dogs.
  • Superior landscaping throughout the nearly acre lot, including a vast assortment of plants and bushes.
  • And last, but CERTAINLY not least, the back yard proudly displays “The Victory Garden”.  This garden was featured in PBS’ historical programs where the back portion of the property was professionally designed.  With raised plant beds & a watering system, many of the programs featured the ‘fruits of labor’ that rose from this earth.  Plants previously featured on “The Victory Garden” include: Swiss Chard, Tennessee Red Okra, Lima beans, Big Boy & Better Boy Tomatoes, String beans, four varieties of Chrysanthemums, Purple Hull Field Peas, Sweet Peppers, Cantaloupe, & had harvested over 100 quarts of Blackberries.

811 Old Mill Road is a home that has been beautifully constructed and updated, every detail executed with careful consideration…It’s true understated elegance is in its perfect form & function & it beckons for you to come home!
