Unique Green-Built Home – 3.3 Acres Near Chapel Hill
Featured on the Solar Home Tour, this incredibly unusual home offers a collection of features seldom found in homes in this price range. It utilizes both passive and active solar energy, with eight rooftop solar panels, concrete floors, radiant in-floor heating to manage and reduce energy costs, and full-house water softening and filtration system. Additionally, the home is handicapped accessible.
Often seen in European designed homes, this exclusive and purposefully designed home encircles a center, private courtyard. Plant and grow your botanicals in this protected space. Enjoy the view of them from the home’s windowed corridors or relax on the courtyard-facing screened-in porch.
Stunning dyed concrete floors throughout absorb winter’s sun and slowly release the warmth back into the house over the course of the day. The floor in summer acts as a heatsink cooling the house. The solar panels (even in winter) preheat the daily water needs.
The home itself has an open floor plan flowing easily from the kitchen, living and dining areas. The kitchen features wraparound wood cabinets and a $12,000 (+) British racing green AGA Cooker. This English stove has 4 ovens preset to 150, 250, 350 and 450 degrees. allowing for most cooking to take place in the ovens rather than the top burners and making large meals a breeze. Behind the kitchen is a mudroom with a pantry, ample cabinets for storage, a deep sink, and washer/dryer connections.
Bedrooms and the study/library maintain their quiet and private space along a corridor serving these areas. There are two full master suites with abundant closet space.
Sitting on 3.3 acres of open meadows and lush woods, the house is nestled in a totally private dell. There are two lots — keep one and sell the other or build a second home! The use of curtains on most windows is optional but unnecessary! Just 20 minutes to Chapel Hill.
