The architectural details in this home and the private setting provide the ultimate in elegance and comfort for inside and outside living.  6024 Old Field sits on 16 acres of historically significant Orange County land backing up to the Johnston Mill Nature Preserve.  The home is a French Manor Normandy classic with modern craftsman details.  Every aspect in this home was meticulously selected to create a beautiful and comfortable environment for daily living and entertaining.  Step into the grand past with unique architectural details while living with every modern convenience. 

Enjoy multiple patios with sweeping vistas, privacy and extensive acreage for small or large gatherings while enjoying all of the thoughtful details. There is a large barn for storage, a private guest house for extended family or friends and private access into the nature preserve with miles of hiking, biking and running trails, streams and horseback riding.

There are so many incredible details in this home it is hard to list them all. Just to name a few; this home was built with custom brick and it has a timeless slate roof and copper gutters and downspouts.  The landscaping is majestic with the 50 specimen trees specifically brought in from Athens, GA to line the entrance to this gracious home.

The majority of the floors throughout the main house are 7 ¼” Brazilian Cherry, the windows are the highest quality low-E from Marvin, most of the doors are Mahogany.  The other flooring ranges from French limestone to travertine.  The dining room has custom antique heart pine raised panel walls and a very special feature in the closet.  Don’t miss taking a look.

The heart of the home, the kitchen and family rooms are nothing short of spectacular.  The kitchen is designed for the discerning cook.  The placement of every drawer and cabinet, the two Miele dishwashers, the walk-in pantry, the side-by-side Thermador refrigerator and freezer, and the elegant butler’s pantry leading to the dining room were designed with the utmost care.

The sweeping views from every room in this home allow you to appreciate this unique location.  Where can you find a home with so much grace and beauty sitting on such a spectacular piece of land perfectly positioned between Chapel Hill and Durham, with a short drive to RDU International Airport and downtown Raleigh.

The main house has 4 beautiful bedrooms with many other beautiful and fluid spaces.  How thoughtful to have an office for guests and an exercise room off the master suite.  This room could easily be transformed into another office.  The West wing has a lovely first floor office and the grand bonus room on the second floor has been used as an office but could be used as a recreation (billiard) room or home theater with plumbing for a bar.

The barn can store additional cars or be a fantastic workshop for the hobbyist.  The upstairs guest house is equipped with a kitchen, knotty pine floors, antique Chinese vanity, hook-ups for a washer and dryer and a deer fence around an enclosed garden area.

This property has a 9-bedroom perk.  A three-bedroom addition has been approved by the county with ample room for a pool and/or orchard.
