This hand-built artist haven is full of character and charm. Located about 15 minutes from Chapel Hill, Pittsboro, and Saxapahaw, this is an ideal getaway for those who want to spend time in nature while still being close to the city. The rustic atmosphere is complemented by modern amenities, say no more! Build a fire, soak in the tub, and admire the great outdoors from our picture windows.

The space
This 3BR / 2BA home sits on 5 acres for a spacious and peaceful getaway while still being 15 minutes from town. Our photographer described this place as "Cozy and super charming. Lots of windows and great art make it feel warm and inviting." There are more windows in this house than in most houses of three times the size. Handmade feel with many artsy touches like original mosaics, wood and slate floors. A wood stove for experienced fire tenders on cold days and evenings. This is a one of a kind place that is unique and hard to find.

NOTE: It has a very outdoorsy feel. You're likely to see squirrels, birds, maybe even a fox or raccoon. Summertimes are usually full of bugs — and they might find themselves inside your home. Cobwebs can appear literally overnight. For those weary of the great outdoors or nature's creatures, this place is not for you. We do not fumigate and choose to use natural pest management strategies whenever possible. The home is chemical and fragrance-free for easier breathing and better sleep.

The owners built the home by hand using recycled and repurposed materials. Enjoy the mosaics made from recycled tiles, the amazing re-homed picture windows and stained glass, and notice that each part of the home was built with love and appreciation for the materials used. This place is truly a work of art that stands in collaboration with nature.
