This custom home features an exquisite 1st-floor master bedroom suite with custom
built-in cherry wood cabinetry and fireplace, a sitting room with a cherry-wood mantled fireplace, a
separate yoga room, and an elegant master bath. Large windows throughout the home
frame beautiful vistas of the garden and the hardwood forest that has been thoughtfully
thinned to create long views of the expansive 10-acre property, and to allow abundant
light into the home. The large inviting cook’s kitchen and separate wet bar are perfect
for the creative cook who enjoys entertaining.
This home is situated on a rise, creating multi-directional vistas. The architecture wraps
generously around the back garden which has gravel paths and is enclosed within a deer
fence, resulting in a southern gardener’s paradise. The garden patio, with small stone
pond and waterfall, and a gas hook-up, is a lovely place to dine alfresco with friends.
The meandering driveway crosses 3 seasonal streams. Footpaths circulate around the
acreage from the rocky elevations to the lower expanse which has a small stand of
shagbark hickory trees, and broad swaths of Atamasco Lillies, an ephemeral early spring
lily. Log seating has been placed along the path in two locations, and a wooden footbridge
crosses one of the streams.
The woods, streams, beds of soft green moss, and rocky outcroppings provide an
abundance of imaginative play opportunities for children and grandchildren. Wildlife
enjoys the peace of Talbryn too. White-tailed deer, turtles, frogs, birds of all kinds
including owls and hawks are frequent visitors. The cleared portion on the north side of the
acreage provides dramatic backlight to the forest and can be used for orchards, gardens,
The private gated Talbryn community is unique in the generous 10+ acre size of the 13
individual properties, and its remarkable proximity to town: an easy 10-minute drive to
Chapel Hill and Carrboro; 15 minutes to the UNC Medical Center. Duke and Durham
are easily accessed on highways or country roads.
Come to Talbryn for natural beauty, quiet privacy, great schools,
and easy access to the Southern part of Heaven.
