From its immaculately landscaped surroundings to its profusion of details both large and small,
2201 Wilshire Drive is simply spectacular. Located on a desirable .91 acre secluded cul-de-sac homesite, this Forest Hills' home is less than a 3/4 mile walk to the beautiful 45 acre+ Forest Hills Park. Durham Performing Arts Center, Durham Bulls Athletic Park, the Durham Farmers
Market, and a plethora of award-winning restaurants are less than 3 miles away. Its location is as stellar as the home itself. The home has been renovated in 2018, 2020 and 2022 to provide for outstanding flow and for expanded living and entertaining space both indoors and outdoors. Consisting of 6 bedrooms, 7 full baths, and 2 half baths in 9,785 HSF, a welcoming covered front porch leads to a spacious foyer, flanked by the home's expansive main level living areas to
the left and a private owner's wing to the right. The living space of the main floor includes an ample living room and adjoining keeping room, opening to a wonderful family room (20.8' x 48.2' and 11' ceiling) with a hidden bar and an abundance of windows overlooking a lush backyard. An epicurean kitchen, featuring a dumbwaiter to the lower level kitchen and a passthrough to the family room (among many other amenities), is positioned across from a lovely dining room and a huge walk-in pantry. Built-ins, gleaming hardwoods with artisan insets, a dazzling combo of marble/ceramic tile flooring, and patio access blend with these stunning
living areas to deliver an entertainer's dream! In addition to an airy primary bedroom suite, the owner's wing is complete with a 2nd bedroom/study and tremendous walk-in closet storage with marvelous portions of cedar-lined
shelving. Upstairs is home to 2 bedrooms with ensuite baths, closet storage galore, and an extralarge hobby room.
The lower level of 2201 Wilshire Drive is truly special. A kitchen, den with dining nook, game room, and covered patio (with a hot tub) are adjacent to a fabulous outdoor pool, extending the
home's entertaining options. Two additional bedrooms with a Jack and Jill bath allow for multigenerational living, and a sauna, an exercise/dance/yoga room, 2 baths convenient for pool use, a
workshop, and loads of storage round out this floor. All this, plus a 3-car garage and numerous updates throughout make this home an irresistible opportunity. How do we adequately condense the many attributes of 2201 Wilshire Drive? We really cannot; the home is an absolute must-see. We do feel, however, that Classic Elegance is an apt description. We invite you to see this gem for yourself. Contact us for a private appointment.
