Waterford Place at the Oaks, Chapel Hill, North Carolina


Offered at $2,350,000

On a quiet cul-de-sac in Chapel Hill’s The Oaks, a handsome brick Georgian residence magically masterminded to bestow every comfort, melodiously occupies a landscaped and tastefully wooded setting. The classic estate, accessed through a pair of brick gate posts topped by antique stone lions, epitomizes garden lawn characteristics beloved throughout the South with its boxwood-framed rose garden and lush lawn. The main entrance features a massive door with sidelights and a transom opening to a sweeping curved staircase. Floors of Brazilian cherry with deep baseboards lead to a luxuriously appointed office/library featuring a floor-to-ceiling built-in cabinet wall of gleaming cherry with a desk and multiple bookcases, a second built-in desk, an elegant fireplace, and a private powder room. The dining room is brightened by natural light from arched windows with a view of the charming front veranda. A light-filled living area adjoins the spacious granite island kitchen with informal dining area. All views are of the fieldstone decked terrace with its stone fireplace and tri-form pool with jetted whirlpool and fountain. An arched alcove leads to the butler’s pantry and on to the magnificent dining room. A second level accommodates a recreation room with full restaurant-quality bar and a media wall with three large screen displays, four bedrooms—including the master suite with sitting room and free-standing tub and walk-in shower—and an outdoor balcony offering views of the picturesque gardens. A third level houses a multimedia screening area, two additional bedrooms, and a spacious bath. In all, Waterford Place at the Oaks is a rare combination of traditional elegance, heartwarming comfort and state-of-the-art living.
