Gimghoul Cottage

Chapel Hill, NC

An extensive renovation transformed this 1950’s home, in the lovely historic Gimghoul neighborhood of Chapel Hill, into a spacious and elegant retirement residence. As you approach and enter, a new broad dormer above the front door brings generous light into the inviting foyer and the second floor balcony. French doors open from the formal living room onto the rocking chair front porch. A beautifully crafted curved wood ceiling leads to the dining room with its own handsome fireplace. The light-filled kitchen is outfitted for the resident gourmet cook and wine enthusiast. A new screen porch and elevated deck overlook a secluded backyard. Other conveniences and pleasures include a well-appointed laundry and master closet, a private home office, and a luxurious master bathroom. The owners are looking forward to many happy years in their comfortable yet sophisticated renovated home.
