Stunning Estate Home in Prestigious Bedford Falls
Bedford at Falls River is a master planned community unlike any other. Recipient of numerous awards, this highly coveted and thoughtfully developed neighborhood is ideally situated at the heart of everything Raleigh has to offer. Surrounded by an abundance of natural beauty—green ways, nature preserves, recreation and parks—as well as, just minutes from all the fine dining, shopping, museums, and night life that North Hills and Downtown have to offer. Ease of living and convenience are this communities cornerstones. Not to mention it is just a short drive from Raleigh International Airport.
And that is just what surrounds Bedford... home-ownership here proves that it is what is on the inside that makes this community so special. Though the neighborhood is quite large, and very well established, it exemplifies small town living.
Picturesque sidewalks, fountains, landscaping, playgrounds, pools, clubhouse and even an exclusive town square complete with restaurant, retail, cafe, spa and dry cleaner! All adding to its one-of-a-kind living experience.
The perfect mix of privacy and security, along with a strong sense of community. The amenities at Beford also include a dedicated events director responsible for creating the neighborhoods robust social calendar. With events like the annual Bedford Palooza music festival, Easter egg hunts complete with Easter bunny meet and greet, Fall festival, "Food Truck Rodeo", Forth Fest, outdoor movie nights, and many, many more. Bedford at Falls River has something for everyone.
The Estates at Bedford
Bedford boast year round beauty and entertainment, as well as, a large variety of gorgeous homes, however, none quite as impressive as those nestled in the Estates at Bedford. 10909 Grand Journey is a stunning custom home on an idyllic lot just beyond the Estates iron gates and meticulously landscaped avenues. "Avenue" in its purest definition is intended to enhance a sense of arrival; the tree lined streets and sidewalks leading to this lovely homestead do just that. A homeowner here has most certainly "arrived."
On your approach, you are struck by this homes timeless beauty. Nothing gaudy or garish, just beautiful landscaping and stonework—hinting at what is just beyond the doors. The finishes include: large corbels, jack arches, weighty lanterns, and hinged shutters. In a world of faux finishes, this home is the gold standard in real quality.
Massive, solid wood doors and transom window fill the grand entry with light, highlighting the stunning Australian Cypress hardwoods throughout the main floor, stairs, and upstairs hall.
The formal dining room, like the rest of the home, boasts stunning millwork. Chair rail, picture frame moldings, and over sized trim have been finished with designer paint. Soaring windows and custom arched walkways lead you to your living room. A perfect space to relax and entertain. Coffered ceilings and built-ins punctuate the beautiful floor to ceiling stone fireplace complete with complex jack arch inlay and 10" solid stone mantel. Unlike the views that you get with track homes in this price point (usually stuck looking into someone else's living room), the views framed by your wall of windows are serene. A picturesque and private backyard with mature trees, shrubs, and professionally installed landscape lighting.
The kitchen is a chefs dream, with granite counter tops, large working island, solid wood cabinets, stainless steal appliances, and bar counter with enough space for 6. Ample storage and butlers pantry complete with wine fridge. Huge breakfast nook and tons of natural light.
Whether you are capturing some solitude with a coffee by the fireplace or entertaining with a card game; homework at the counter top or breakfast in the nook, this kitchen was designed with form and function in mind. Again, the millwork is show stopping: coffered ceilings, built-ins, arched walkways, and trim throughout.
The ideal master suite to rest, recharge, and prepare for what lies ahead. Soaring windows in seating area with private views, and three-sided fireplace! Spa-like on suite bathroom, with chandelier and huge walk-in closet featuring custom built-in storage.
Everything You Need Under One Roof
Included on the main floor is a large office with ample storage, built-ins, and fireplace with granite surround. As well as, a first floor guest room and private full bath. An iron spindled staircase lead to the second floor which plays host to even more outstanding architectural details. 3 additional large bedrooms all with walk-in closets and 2 full baths. Plus, a large bonus room that has been outfitted as a media room, complete with sconces, projector and screen. This room can also be considered a 6th bedroom should you choose to use it as such.
There is a hidden gem on the third floor...
A completely finished attic space can suite a multitude of purposes: workout room, dance studio, craft or hobby room, games room, secondary master, in-laws suite, additional office... the possibilities are limitless. And best part is that it has not been included in the listing square footage... more living area with zero cost to you.
