The Great American Estate Home
This home was built to withstand the test of time. Both in design and construction. There's a distinctness to a custom built home. Something that can not be purchased from a national builder. Quality, thoughtfulness, and impeccable attention to detail are the cornerstones that are evident throughout every inch of this homestead.
On your approach, this home all but beckons you to slow your pace. The stately drive and immaculate landscaping set the tone of luxury— hinting at what is just beyond the doors. The finishes include a historically inspired elevation, timeless lanterns, and grand entry. Both the front and back yards have been painstakingly updated with top of the line evergreen turf, adding appeal and a low maintenance lifestyle.
Curbed streets, greenways, acres of preserved natural areas, phenomenal schools, and access to one of the most sought after lifestyles in the country—to name just a few of the reasons this location is so highly coveted. 1208 Brooks Ave is especially so. The outdoor spaces are idyllic. Massive covered porch with television and phantom screens, over-sized uncovered patio with fire pit and hot tub, extensive land and hard scaping, provide the perfect, private place for entertaining and alfresco dining. Privacy and serenity in the heart of everything Downtown Raleigh has to offer. Minutes to Cameron Village, Downtown, parks, grocery (Whole Foods and Wegmans), airport, and RTP.
A break from the ordinary
Massive, solid wood doors, fill the grand entry with light. Every detail of life in this home has been thoughtfully considered.
The formal dining room, like the rest of the home, boasts beautiful millwork and oversized moldings and trim. Soaring windows and doorways lead you to your living room and wine room. Full siding door set the tone in the living room-the perfect space to relax and entertain.
The kitchen is a chefs dream, with quartz counter tops, massive island, solid wood cabinets, gorgeous hardware, and stainless steal appliances. Every area of the kitchen and keeping room beyond is purposeful and beautiful, to include the hidden, massive pantry, disguised as cabinetry.
Whether you are capturing some solitude with a coffee by the fireplace or entertaining with a card game; homework at the counter top or catching up on some work in the office nook, this kitchen was designed with form and function in mind.
