Divine Post-Modern Jewel, this isn't your typical "subdivision" or "tract home". This is an experience for the senses, to help you relax and truly be inspired by your surroundings. Inspired by California Hillside Ranch architecture, local architect W. Harley Funk designed this home as his personal residence on nearly 1 acre in the Pike Creek area. Nestled above the Red Clay Creek & Wilmington & Western Railroad historic tracks, you are close to it all but have no sense of it when you are within the walls of this exceptional home. This house was designed to flow with the topography of the land, the large windows making the most of the rear and side views. The front patio living area has been incorporated into the architecture, making it an extension of the interior living spaces with built-in planters and custom walls with bench seating and lighting. It is the perfect place to have your morning coffee, host a party or let the young ones ride their bikes & play. Inside, the open living space includes an enormous living room with oak hardwood floors flowing into the dining room. There is a den, currently used as an artist's office & studio, featuring a custom wood stove and stunning views of the lot's natural landscaping. Sliding doors give access to the screened-in porch, which captures treetop views, cool breezes and golden light during sunsets. Living space continues with 3 additional bedrooms, a full & half-bath, modernized with beautiful granite & tile. All bedrooms feature beautiful views & custom built-in storage, reminiscent of the designs utilized by Frank Lloyd Wright. The bright & open turnback staircase leads to lower level living, including a large family room with fireplace, bonus room, multiple exterior doors to a ground level porch, and down a hallway is a private master retreat consisting of a huge master bedroom with double closets, a spacious full bathroom and dressing area. Two additional rooms round out the living space, one with flexibility for a second bedroom or office, the other space as a library, den or laundry room. Some of the specific features of this custom home by architect, W. Harley Funk, include: nearly 1 acre of native landscaping designed specifically to compliment the architecture and the wooded lot, 5 bedrooms, master suite on the lower level, 2 full & 1 half bathrooms, wide hallways, vaulted ceilings including 8 skylights, dual-zoned heating and cooling systems, expansive wall space, & 2-Car garage
