Hurry! You Can Buy James Taylor's Childhood Home in North Carolina

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Capital Properties DC AB15253

 

Hands down, my favorite singers are James Taylor and Carole King.  Sadly for me,  I probably will never get to hang out with either of them, but now I could live in James Taylor's childhood home in Chapel Hill! You can now live in the star’s childhood home. Well, if I win it at auction, that is.  Just to be clear... This is NOT my listing although it would be a Great one. 

Sweet Baby James' home is currently on the market, with bids due by 3 p.m. on June 29. The home has a sleek, mid-century modern look, reflecting that its construction date in 1952. The home sits on an amazing 24 acres in the heart of Chapel Hill and is more than 3,760 square feet of living space. The home and guest house incorporate the work of three renowned architects: George Matsumoto, John Latimer and Arthur Cogswell.

The Taylors owned the home for over 20 years, and James Taylor spent his childhood there.  According to an article by Rismedia, rumor has it the singer’s initials are still carved in the back deck.

Lise I'd buy the house even if it wasn't Sweet Baby James childhood home.  Love the mid-century look and the 24 acres. Sweet!

Emmy Lou Harris used to live in the Valley Vista, learned from research we did when it became a tenant condo conversion.  And we wondered who was so vain?

Hi Lise.  One of my favorites as well.  I wonder how his music will sound in this home for the new buyer.

Wow, Lise that is some house for sweet baby James who I adore too with Carole King...Carole lived in my hometown in the 1970's and she is a small thing who I got to see up & personal...nothing like her music growing up!

I have only dealt with one celebrity, over the years, who had me sign a non disclosure affidavit that covered before and after the sale Lise Howe.

I thought it would have helped the sale but my lips are sealed...

Lise, what a beatuiful home, and it's hard to imagine having 24 acres is a in the heart of any urban area.  I hope whoever wins the auction doesn't subdivide the land!
