This is a rare find in the wonderful Duke Forest neighborhood that abuts Duke University with primarily older homes. This house was built in 2004 by Mike Diamond of Green Country Builders for comfort and efficiency.
The 1,850 square foot home is finely finished inside, with hardwoods in the living areas and carpet in the bedrooms. The kitchen boasts large cabinets, granite countertops, and a sumptuous eat-in area with oversized bay windows overlooking the back yard.
In the living room, there is a over-ten foot ceiling that provides an expanse to the open floor plan. At the back of the house, oversized windows with another set of windows above allows the natural sunlight to shine inside the space, which adds to the beauty of the living room with its built-in bookshelves and cabinets, and a marble-surround fireplace.
Off the back of the house is a deck that measures 10 feet by 16 feet that eases the transition to the shady back yard, and allow for ease of entertaining. A two-car garage (21" by 21") also has four large windows when one is working inside on a project.
The owners have added a whole-house generator to the house, which provides a sense of security on those occasions when the neighborhood looses power.
