This substantially-updated mid-century home has a serene charm and is beautifully situated on the corner of a quiet cul-de-sac surrounded by an amazing, mature garden with a huge variety of trees, shrubs, bulbs and perennials (see garden brochure/plant list) creating a fantastic habitat for birds and other wildlife, along with wonderful garden outlooks from every window and creating a rare combination of privacy and green outlooks!
great views of the garden and lots of privacy, too!
A paved path winds gently through the front garden to the porch and one-step entry, opening to a commodious, tiled-floored foyer. Inside, the living room has a big picture window overlooking the lush front garden and a brick fireplace with a wood-burning insert and raised stone hearth; the adjacent dining room has sliding doors that open to a large covered porch and the back garden!
A decorative sliding antique wooden door opens to a hall that serves two bedrooms (one with two closets) and two baths. In one bath, a washer and dryer have been installed with a utility sink and butcher block folding table! Solid oak floors line the formal rooms and bedrooms.
Off the kitchen is another hallway with a door leading to the side yard, stairway to the basement, and two more rooms: a large family room was converted to a small den type room (could be reimagined as a walk-in closet) and another big room with windows on two sides could easily be used as a bedroom, craft/art room or home office!
The kitchen has been updated with granite counters, an abundance of modern oak cabinets, stainless-steel appliances, and has a window over the sink looking out to the wonderful garden! Also, a rolling cart fits under the counters and allows flexibility for expanding the prep area.
Ahh, the garden! There are many “garden rooms” out here! Brick paths line the walkways, and the fully fenced back yard is a wildlife sanctuary — home to many returning and nesting birds. An A-framed structure makes a great shed or playhouse, and there’s a brick patio making a fine spot for dining al fresco!
On the east side are some raised beds for growing annuals or veggies, plus many rose varieties among numerous other plants and trees.
The high-ceilinged basement houses the mechanicals, another laundry area and the attached garage. The space is finished as a work & storage area with loads of benches and cabinets (a whimsical mural was hand painted on the cabinet fronts!) This is a lovely garden home in a great Pinehurst neighborhood!
