The Alexanders gave us the welcome opportunity to work with John Lindsay, the talented and prolific designer who is behind so many spectacular projects in Chapel Hill and surrounding areas. John’s vision for this 50’s modern house was a pleasure to bring to life, and the Alexanders’ good taste and prompt decision-making made the process even more satisfying. The house was extended toward the back under the existing roof on both main floor and basement levels. We also added floor space to the driveway side to accommodate a new TV room and mudroom. The new shed at the bottom of the driveway adds a grace note to the informal entrance. Cabinetwork was by Aventine, the premier cabinet shop in Chapel Hill. Flooded with light, the back of this house is a field of glass overlooking nature trails and Finley golf course. But don’t worry about drawing the shades – you’ll have total privacy from your neighbors. This home also boasts a wine cellar and chef’s kitchen with a Viking range, stainless steel counter tops with seamless prep sinks, and vintage details from the former Fowler’s market. Come in, put your feet up – you’ll be mesmerized. This home is for sale:
