When Robin and Gregg Pointon discovered the tranquil beauty of this dreamy custom-built Southern charmer tucked sweetly away within the small-town friendly community vibe of DuPont, they found what they thought would be their forever home.
But life happens and with it comes new changes and new adventures.
Today, the Gerry Slick-designed 2002 "Street of Dreams" featured home — a popular tour with the latest and greatest ideas and products in the home building industry — is listed on the market for just over $1 million.
Situated neatly on an out-of-the-way, low-traffic neighborhood circle, the easily-accessible paved trails leading into a quaint downtown create the perfect balance of country and city living.
With no detail unturned — from its traditional two-story façade and paved brick walkway, to wide-open indoor living spaces, outdoor covered patio, and wrap around porch, the stunning four bedroom, two-and-a-half bath home oozes the feeling of a slow, relaxed front-porch-sweet-tea-sipping-Southern welcome.
Craftily made built-ins and millwork located throughout the nearly 4,000-square-foot expanse, and special touches like walnut floors with maple inlays in the formal dining space, vaulted ceilings, and double-pained windows make way for a home meant to be lived in.
The kitchen echoes these sentiments with stainless steel appliances and lots of space that welcomes cookie baking, entertaining, and dinners with family and friends.
Along with the warm ambiance from gas fireplaces, the two-sided inserts between the family room/kitchen, and the five-piece luxury master bedroom/bathroom suite offers a uniquely dramatic glow and added charm.
“I’ve looked around every day I’ve lived here, and seem to find something new each time,” Robin said. “I’ll notice something on the ceiling, and wonder, how did the architect think to do that. They really didn’t leave out any detail. It’s just really special.”
The outdoor living areas are just as inviting. Surrounded by immense evergreens and wildlife-filled green spaces, it’s like its own private nature preserve.
Between the covered deck, considerably-sized paved patios, hot tub, and the gentle sounds of a waterfall flowing into the nearby landscape pond, it’s the perfect year-round sanctuary, and destination for hosting countless parties and gatherings.
“You don’t really need to go anywhere,” Robin said. “Everything you need is right here.”
