Classic elegance is in abundance in this exquisitely crafted European-style manse perched atop a mountain in Chapel Hill, N.C.’s Highland Park neighborhood of the prestigious Governor’s Club.
Awaiting inside the 11,600 square-foot residence: Expansive yet comfortable living and entertaining spaces that exude timeless sophistication throughout, a chef’s kitchen with three islands, a scullery kitchen, a state-of-the-art home theater, a fully outfitted gym, and spa. “It’s an entertainer’s dream come true,” says listing agent Kathryn DeBlasio of Coldwell Banker Howard Perry Walston in Chapel Hill, N.C.
Luxury is expressed “in every detail,” she notes, from the textured silk walls to the twin Baccarat chandeliers in the beautiful dining room and the imported French marble mantels adorning both the library and formal living room. An elevator brings you to four bedrooms, including the gracious owners’ suite with its two vast walk-in closets and two bathrooms – each basking in views. Beyond the residence, the terraced back garden is reminiscent of the finest European castles and villas with classical statues and manicured hedges and roses, creating the perfect ambiance for a sophisticated outdoor fête on the stunning patio. At the end of the evening, you can “wind down in front of the fireplace in the custom wrought-iron gazebo,” DeBlasio says.
