Nearly 1 acre along the Red Clay Creek means Water View! Please enter driveway on the side where For Sale sign is. Architect W. Harley Funk designed this unique California Hillside Ranch as his personal residence on nearly 1 acre in the Pike Creek area. You are close to it all but have no sense of it when you are within the walls of this post-modern jewel. You will be awe-inspired by your surroundings looking out the huge windows and relaxing on the screened-in porch, which captures treetop views, cool breezes, and golden light during sunset views of the Red Clay Creek & Wilmington & Western Railroad train. The front brick patio is an extension of the interior living space with built-in planters, custom bench seating, and modern lighting. It is the perfect place to host a party or let the young ones ride their bikes & play. Once inside, the foyer invites you into an enormous living room with original, oak hardwood floors flowing into the dining room. There is a den off the breakfast area which features a custom wood stove and door to the porch. All 3 bedrooms feature custom built-in wood storage, reminiscent of the designs utilized by Frank Lloyd Wright. The full & half-bath were modernized with granite & tile. Vaulted ceilings with 8 skylights leave little need to turn on the lights in the living room, kitchen, hall, and baths. The large open staircase leads to lower level living, including a brick fireplace in the huge family room, a bonus room, multiple exterior doors to a ground level porch, and down a hallway is a private master retreat consisting of a master bedroom with double closets, a spacious full bathroom and dressing area. Two additional rooms round out the living space, one with flexibility for a second bedroom or office, the other space as a library, den or laundry room. Dual-zoned heating and cooling systems and a 2-Car garage round out this home's features. In Historic Diatrict of Fells Mill.
