An impeccable reimagining has combined classic French and contemporary design elements in this dramatic Chapel Hill Historic District home. There is an air of “Paris chic” throughout that radiates joie de vivre. Entering the home’s marble-floored foyer, one gazes through the tranquil sitting room to an expansive terrace and beyond to a stream and verdant wood. The sitting room, library and formal living and dining rooms open to the terrace through French doors. Gallery hallways lead to the beautiful gourmet culinary center, handsome office/library, and the primary suite: a sanctuary comparable to quarters found in the finest world-class hotel or resort. Upstairs, a bedroom with bath ensuite plus two additional guest rooms and a bath await. Downstairs, a full apartment with its private entrance is perfect for extended family or special guests. The lower level also hosts perhaps the home’s pièce de résistance: a spectacular indoor swimming pool with a virtual wall of glass doors opening to a terrace overlooking the wood and stream. This arresting residence is convenient to shopping, dining, and UNC at Chapel Hill.
