Old marries new in the most recent Global Luxury Listing of Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston in Downtown Hillsborough. The Dr. Efland Forrest House sits one block from the center of Hillsborough's Historic District.

Construction on this Neoclassical Revival (one of the only examples of this architectural style in the Historic District) began in 1938 and was completed in 1941. The current owners of 202 West King Street spared no expense adding 21st century luxury and convenience while preserving the grandeur of the original house.

The new solid wood front door welcomes you into a generous hall with a curved second story landing. Fresh paint, refinished floors, new doors and custom lighting throughout bring a fresh look to the home. The living room's wood-burning fireplace and built-in bookcases are a gracious spot to host guests. The downstairs powder room was refinished with designer cork wallpaper, a custom-built cabinet and exquisite floor tile.

The transformation in the kitchen is swoon-worthy: the owners combined two rooms to provide the home with the grandeur and livability expected of today's modern kitchen. Locally-sourced custom cabinets are topped with quartz countertops, appliances include a Wolf 6-burner professional range, Asko dishwasher and built-in Sub-Zero with multi-case wine refrigerator. Or if you choose to dine out, stroll one block down the street to any number of delicious eating establishments, including Panciuto, (James Beard Award Finalist for several years running).

The owner's suite was reconfigured, adding a generous walk-in closet and completely renovating the bath, with heated floors, custom cabinets and stone tile. The home has a one-bay garage that fits two cars deep and sits on a generous corner lot.

The home's original windows were all restored including the portico windows flanking the front door. Hanging above the door is a hand-crafted custom copper light fixture designed to honor the home's original style. No detail was overlooked, and every detail was thoughtfully considered. 

Experience this one of a kind property for yourself to see the craftsmanship and style that makes this home unique by scheduling a private tour from listing agent Meighan Carmichael.

HPW Open Houses February 23-24Attention home buyers – this is THE weekend for you to find your new home and we're ready to help.

Our in-the-know real estate agents will be hosting open houses this Saturday and Sunday in nearly every corner of this prospering Triangle region and Goldsboro, too. It's time to map out a plan to make the most of this fall weekend. 

Open House Tips For Buyers

It doesn't matter if you're entering the second month of your house hunt or are just getting started, you're going to want to make the most of your open house visits. 

Do Some Digging

Power up your computer or charge up your Smart Phone and start "digging" for information on the homes you plan to visit. Access a home valuation estimate on our HPW.com website to review a comprehensive report with property details, recent area sales, and more useful information for each of the homes you like. 

Take Your Time

Give yourself ample time to tour the homes you visit. Walk through each home with the onsite agent and then go back through on your own. Take time to step into the backyard or stroll down the street. Buying a home is a big deal, and you're going to want to gather every detail possible to make an educated decision. 

Curb Your Enthusiasm

Attending an open house is exciting, especially when you think the home may be perfect for you and your family. Do your best to remain cool, calm, and collected as you take your tour to ensure you see the home as it really is, without the rose-colored lenses.
