A modernist icon in coveted Morgan Creek. Built by the owner of highly acclaimed Link Design + Build as his personal residence and improved-upon by the current owners. Style and tranquility are off the charts. Glass-walled interiors allow the sublime landscape to penetrate rooms bathed in natural light. Airy spaces, outfitted in elevated neutrals, seamlessly blend clean-lines and warmth. The open living room, dining zone and kitchen are a voluminous sweep of luxe functionality. Personality and poise shine with soaring ceilings; a statement floating steel and wood staircase; European white oak flooring; Christian Lacroix and handcrafted Scottish wallpaper; Carrera marble in the kitchen and baths; designer tile including Ann Sacks; Dacor and SubZero appliances; custom cabinetry, curated lighting and more. Soak up the serenity in meditative bedrooms with en-suite baths and spacious closets. Two main-level bedrooms, one of which is a separate suite with kitchenette. The bonus is a game changer - ready for purpose and playfulness - complete with a wet bar and beverage refrigerator. Amidst the poetic landscape is a detached studio with a garden view picture window. Entertaining outside is second nature. Outdoor spaces have indoor comforts including the expansive screen porch plus gravel patio with masonry fireplace and canopy of twinkle lights. While mature oaks attract songbirds, multiple garden rooms in raised and terraced beds include woodland, hydrangea, specialty, edible, pollinator and butterfly gardens. Garden maintenance is a breeze with the new Hydrawise irrigation system. Quick access to even more serenity at the Morgan Creek, Botanical Garden and Merritt's Pasture trails. Ultra convenient to the natural beauty, flourishing food scene and cultural offerings of Chapel Hill as well as UNC, Durham, I40, Chatham and backroads to RTP. This one-of-a-kind in-town estate is a private opulent retreat in the heart of a vibrant neighborhood. Detached living spaces (not included in HSF) include detached guest suite (481 additional SF), which is connected to the house via the garage, and ma'am shed /detached studio (151 additional SF).
