Property Description:

Experience the character and charm of this 1925 colonial nestled in a 1.54-acre oasis on Tenney Circle in the heart of Chapel Hill. Originally built by Robert E Coker, a pioneer in his field and former UNC Kenan professor of Zoology, the home has been meticulously restored to bring modern convenience to its timeless style. No detail has been overlooked and no expense spared in renovating this tribute to taste and tranquility, making it a delight to entertain. Luxuriate in the champagne hot tub and infinity pool with waterfall, relax on the screened porch swing bed, enjoy the superbly appointed kitchen or simply enjoy the views. The main house offers 5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths and a floor plan that allows for cozy get togethers as well as large gatherings offering both spacious rooms and intimate spaces. The pool house, built in 2020, offers 2,537 sq feet of living space on two floors with 1.5 baths and a full kitchen giving the new owners a number of options. A truly exceptional property, this is a rare opportunity to live privately while being a walk away from a vibrant downtown. Please view virtual tour.
