This magnificent transitional style home is located in southwest Durham's Lyons Farm subdivision. The home is loaded with numerous high end and tasteful finishes that really take the property to the next level. The entire first floor is covered in gleaming hardwood floors which flow from room to room. As you walk through the front door you can't help but be drawn into the expansive great room thanks to the fireplace which is flanked by windows and the extra high ceilings trimmed with crown molding. Pass through the wide arched doorway into the supersized eat-in gourmet kitchen. Rich warm maple cabinetry is accented by crisp white appliances and Corian counter tops with breakfast bar. The adjoining breakfast area is so large that it could easily accommodate a dining set as well as a downstairs office or an additional seating area. The numerous windows and patio door in this space give it plenty of natural light, and look out over the large elevated deck. Like to entertain? Throw a dinner party and impress your guests with the beauty of the traditional looking formal dining room which features striking white wainscoting and crown molding against gorgeous persimmon walls. Take a trip up the open staircase and discover a bonus loft area at the top of the landing. Your first instinct will be to fill this space with comfy furniture so you can curl up and read a book. All three bedrooms are on the second floor. The spare bedrooms are amply sized; one even has an additional sitting room highlighted by windows that look out over the front yard. The master suite is a sanctuary with a dynamic octagonal trayed ceiling and a spa-like master bath with double vanity, soaking tub, separate shower and private water closet. Located only a few miles south of I-40 you'll have easy access to the whole triangle. Don't miss this gem! Pets negotiable.
