Property description
Classic design and sublime craftsmanship embody this elegant Federal style home. Located in the heart of one of Raleigh’s finest neighborhoods, both house and its magnificent grounds are sophisticated and comfortable. Constructed in 1925 and designed by one of North Carolina’s preeminent architects, William Henley “Polly” Deitrick, its owners have blessed the house and land with upgrades and impeccable care over the decades. Totaling over 4,000 sq. ft., the residence commands a handsome, welcoming presence on its tranquil lane.The home is set back from the street and introduced by dramatic, parterre-style landscaping and lovely, flowering trees that flank a long brick walkway. Designed by renowned landscape architect Chip Callaway, the lush flora, mature trees, and walking paths ornament the property, creating a magical sanctuary.
From the beautifully-stained wide-plank wood floor and rich patina of the elegant staircase’s handrail, to the stately crown molding and wainscoting, respect for the traditional abounds. Off the foyer, the living room features a striking fireplace; some of its hearth bricks originally part of the historic Appomattox courthouse. Across the way, the study provides abundant built-in bookcases and access to an intimate covered sitting porch.
The impressive foyer extends to the rear of the house where French doors open to an over 400 square foot veranda, though not before passing the charming dining room with grand crown molding, a stunning chandelier, and pair of French doors to the veranda.
The gourmet galley kitchen, designed with both efficiency and aesthetics in mind, has cork floors, granite countertops, and high-end stainless appliances sure to win approval from the family chef or caterer. Informal meals may be enjoyed in the adjacent breakfast area where built-in cabinetry, entrée to the sitting porch, and a convenient half-bath await.
The spacious owner’s suite spans a sleeping area plus a large sitting area, hosts dual walk-in closets and a cedar closet, as well as a private bath and terrace. A secondary bedroom suite is accessible from the owner’s and offers the option of an office or studio.

An additional bedroom suite features dual closets, a cozy fireplace and, of course, a bath en suite .
There is something about an expansive, finished ground-level basement, opening to its own veranda and on to the grounds, that adds a sense of casual privilege to a large residence. Here, a roomy den with a wet bar, bedroom, bath with shower, wine room and wine cellar, dark room, utility room, and storage comprise this versatile space.
This over one-acre Hayes Barton sanctuary evokes an air of relaxed luxury at every turn. From its quiet lane, it extends an image of classic 2-story Federal architecture, while from the serenity of its rear grounds, it is a 3-story vision of refinement, with its opposing staircases cascading from the second level veranda to a sprawling lawn seemingly awaiting a festive garden party.
