This three-sides brick home on a 1.03 acre wooded lot offers so much square footage for the money with a finished basement plus an unfinished walk-up attic. When you walk inside the leaded glass front door with transom above, you enter a two-story foyer with an attractive, wood staircase. There is a see-through, gas logs fireplace between the formal living room and study/library with built-in bookcases. The dining room is spacious enough for entertaining and offers a trey ceiling, wainscoting, crown molding, and a bay window with plantation shutters. In the open kitchen, you’ll find granite countertops, stainless steel appliances including a gas range with hood, a pantry cupboard with practical pull-outs, tile backsplash, and wood cabinetry, some with glass fronts. There are newly installed hardwood floors in the vaulted family room along with a gas logs fireplace flanked by built-in cabinetry and bookshelves. The first floor study/library has access to a full bath, and the laundry room has a utility sink, block window, and chute from above. Upstairs, there’s brand new neutral carpet everywhere. There are two walk-in closets with built-ins in the master bedroom with sitting area, and the master bath offers separate vanities, private water closet, whirlpool tub, and separate walk-in tile shower with two shower heads. There are three additional bedrooms, one with private bath, and two that share a buddy bath. Rear stairs lead to the spacious, step-up bonus room. The walk-up attic is pre-wired for electricity and plumbed, allowing future expansion potential. Updates include new HVAC systems, water heater, refinished hardwoods, some additional hardwoods, light fixtures, and brushed nickel door knobs and hardware. Outside, there’s a sideload two-car garage, vaulted screened porch with skylights, and a deck with gas line perfect for grilling. The North Raleigh location offers every convenience; this home is close to Lafayette Village, Falls Lake, Honeycutt Park, and the Greenway Trail, and easy access to I-540 means a painless commute to Research Triangle Park or the RDU International Airport.
