The arrival of crisp fall air can always guarantee the beginning of the annual Parade of Homes by Wake County Home Builders Association & Durham, Orange Chatham HBA. McNeill Burbank is proud to showcase two distinct homes in the 2019 Parade.
Our beloved Jarvis home at 583 Great Ridge Parkway is nestled within the desirable Briar Chapel community of Chapel Hill. While our home may seem familiar to locals who have walked through our doors, our choice to place this cherished plan in the Parade is symbolic. The Jarvis was the very first home to plant its roots in the beginning of the Briar Chapel build story. The Jarvis is where our craft begins and where it will end as we approach the culmination of our time in this unmatchable community.
This specific Jarvis home has a sense of curiosity with the old – and the new. The exterior colors alone are moody grays that feel urbanized yet aged. A splash of deep turquoise on the front door feels refreshingly retro.
Within, the home exudes a space that is luxuriously humble from subtle details. Our iconic true white oak hardwood floors sprawl across the first floor and harmoniously collide with gorgeous trim details carefully designed on crisp white walls. The quaint galley kitchen of the Jarvis home has an updated personality with sleek gray cabinets and bright countertops. Collectively the home feels like a renovated historic bungalow safely burrowed in your favorite small town.
Down the road from the quiet Carolina hills is the vibrant world of Bull City. The city of Durham has experienced enormous economic growth in the past years and the Triangle is witnessing the rebirth of a community rich with history, culture and grit. We are honored to have our Barbour home at 1318 Bradburn Drive stand proud in the up-and-coming 751 South community of Durham, North Carolina.
Our hope for the Barbour home was to design a space that would simply be pretty. Recently we have completed homes that are heavy in textures and moody in color tones. We wanted the Barbour to be on the other end of the spectrum.
From the outside the home is an architectural treasure combining transitional materials and using a soft neutral color scheme. The wide front porch feels comfortably grand with an eclectic flagstone and tapered beams.
The interior of the home is bright, airy and seamlessly open. We used some of our most refreshing color pallets to compliment bold blues and vivacious greens. Shiny chrome and beautiful brassy gold finishes are layered throughout the space to create a chic boutique vibe.
We often say that you cannot put a price on natural light, and the amount of heavenly rays that flood the walls, counters and floors of this home would be high dollar no doubt. Oversized windows flank every room of the Stokes to allow the home to purely exist with the land it occupies. There is a sense that you are never enclosed by four walls, but rather within a glass castle of shifting light, color and fabric. We are thrilled to share that our Barbour home has won the distinguished Bronze Award.
If you are in the Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill area this weekend then be sure to stop by our Jarvis and Barbour homes. We look forward to opening the doors to these unique spaces for you, friends and family!
