Feast your eyes on this unbelievable waterfront retreat in Chapel Hill! Custom-built by CS WITT in 1982, this home continues to live well in 2022, and with a spectacular view of the neighboring pond—not to mention the natural environment in a private location only minutes to I-40, UNC, and Duke—it’s almost too good to be true. Keyword: almost! Let us show you around…
The main draw to the inside of 5312 Farrington Road is its open layout, high ceilings, and sun-drenched interiors, thanks to all those windows in the back. Upon walking in, you’ll be greeted by a large room that can easily be fashioned into any living/dining scenario your heart desires. There’s also a separate cozy keeping area on the other side of the main floor with a wood-burning fireplace that’s perfect for curling up with a cup of coffee and a good book while watching the sun rise or set.
Another incredible feature of this home is the sunroom, which features a gorgeous blue tile floor. Set up some couches or a dining room to enjoy the outdoors—and that amazing view!—without actually being outside (ideal for when it’s chilly or rainy).
The large kitchen offers plenty of room for the diligent home chef (see: tons of counter space, plus a small island for prepping!), while storage is aplenty. We also love the light wood cabinets that provide a calm mood, adding to the rustic feel of the home overall.
For those who are working from home, there’s also a large study that could easily double as a home office or library, depending on what your needs are. With washed oak floors and cypress paneled walls, this room is a work of art in and of itself!
The main-level owners’ suite is quite a retreat, as well! Windows let in plenty of light and there’s even a nook to have a separate secluded office space. But you might find the bathroom to be where you spend most of your time… Check out the private tub and large blue-tiled shower (with two benches!). Spa day, anyone?!
Upstairs, there are two more spacious bedrooms that also boast great natural lighting. And there’s a bonus room that you could turn into a home art studio, gym, yoga studio, and more!
And now, the part that you’ve all been waiting for… the backyard! 5312 Farrington Road’s tiered back deck gives you plenty of options for lounging in the sun or enjoying an al fresco meal. Come summer, it’ll be the place to be!
