Chateau d'Amour - Modern Victorian Home on 2 Acres

Room TypeRoom type
Entire home/apt

Perched on a scenic hill, this modern Victorian-inspired home exudes luxury and timeless charm on a 2-acre private lot in Wake Forest. Step into a world of Southern elegance with an inviting wrap-around porch, covered patio and a nine-window turret adding to the home's character. Surrounded by high-end homes, embrace the harmony of nature with bird songs, dine al fresco on the porch with garden-fresh herbs, and create cherished memories under starry or moonlit skies with loved ones. America has provided countless individuals with the opportunity for a better life, and our family is grateful to be one of them. We acknowledge the sacrifices made by those who came before us, which have afforded us the peace, freedom, and lifestyle we enjoy today. Through hard work, persistence, and determination, we've turned our dreams into reality. With a large family, we needed a space where we could celebrate without inconveniencing others. Mom's desire for a wrap-around porch and my wish for a turret, with its natural light and scenic views, were brought to life by a local highly reputable custom builder. Over the past 15 years, our family has come and gone, prompting us to share this American Dream with others through vacation rentals since 2015. It's heartwarming to witness others enjoy our home, even for a brief time. Chateau d'Amour aptly reflects the love that fills this space, dedicated to family and friends. The Space: Chateau d'Amour embodies luxurious yet relaxed living. Its sculptural facade and expansive verandas offer comfort and a warm welcome. Upon entry, an 80-foot view axis leads through the rotunda to the family room fireplace. The circular floor plan effortlessly connects the den, formal living room, kitchen, and formal dining through the butler's pantry. Access to the outdoors is provided by the covered outdoor dining and BBQ porch. The circular stairway in the rotunda leads to the spacious master suite retreat. The upper floor includes a guest suite, two suites sharing the turret, and a large media room with a sink. Despite its substantial 5,348 sq ft size, the home feels far from overwhelming; it exudes warmth and embraces its occupants. Whether it's karaoke in the family room, piano in the formal living room, or dancing under the moonlight on the outside dance floor, each space is designed for enjoyment and insulation from other activities. Watching the changing seasons, from cherry blossoms and azaleas in spring to hummingbirds in summer, or fireflies at night, creates a serene atmosphere. The property's bird feeding stations attract a variety of North Carolina birds. A telescope and binoculars enhance the experience. Guest Access: Guests have access to all areas of the home, except for the large master closet, the storage room off the bonus room, and the detached garage. Currently, only the two-car portion of the attached four-car garage is available for use. Interaction with Guests: Upon arrival, you will be shown around the house by the owner if there is a chance. Otherwise, you will be given a code to enter the side door of the property. There is no key. The home is managed by my siblings and I starting June 2024. We are just a phone call away if you need anything. You'll see us only during your welcoming check-in. Other Important Details: The bedroom configurations include a king-size bed in the Owner Suite, a queen-size bed with a twin trundle bed in the second bedroom, and queen-size beds in the other two rooms beside the turret. The bonus room features a sectional sofa with a pull out queen bed. We provide brand-new air filters for each new guest and sanitize high-touch areas before your arrival. The kitchen appliances were upgraded in December 2020 with top-of-the-line SubZero fridge, Wolf stove, microwave, oven, and Cove dishwasher. The property is fenced upfront only with a custom-designed wrought iron gate at the front, manually operated for added security. Security cameras are recently installed, with one by the front door, another in a corner of the house, and one inside (which can be unplugged by guests). The water source is a 200 ft deep well, tested for lead, nitrate, and nitrate. The home has also been tested for radon gas, with no issues detected. The grass is a mix of wild grass and Bermuda, and no chemical fertilizer is used. The tankless water heater outside the side door may take a few minutes to deliver hot water to the bedrooms above. Let it run, and hot water will reach those areas eventually. Chateau d'Amour's traditional beauty and flexible floor plan have earned recognition and awards, underscoring its exceptional quality. Guests will have access to all areas of the home except the big master closet & detached garage. The left side of the attached garage close to the home entry can be used to park. The other side is a storage area at the moment. The storage off the bonus room is locked. You will be shown around the house to give you a formal orientation. My siblings and I who are managing this home starting June 2024 will be accessible via phone if you need anything. The only time you will see anyone is when you are being welcomed into the home! :) Luxurious country setting in high end area only a few minutes from shopping and restaurants. No public transportation. Must have your own car. Harris Teether, Food Lion and Target are the nearest grocery stores. Whole Foods is about 18 min away. Wakefield, Heritage and the Market of Wake Forest, downtown Wake Forest has lots of restaurant choices. Joyner Park is a beautiful park with 2 mile trails going through pecan groves and old barns. Falls Lake is just a mile down the road from the home. Brevofield golf course is just a mile up the road. 30 minutes to downtown Raleigh, Cary and 40 minutes to Durham, about 55 minutes to Chapel Hill. Yes, it may not be that close to the happening places but if quite, privacy and luxury setting is what you seek, Villa Banika is one of a kind. :) It is worth the drive. The Master bedroom has a king size bed. The room next to it has a queen size bed with a trundle twin beds (2). One of the rooms beside the turret has a king size bed. The other side has two queen beds. The bonus room has a sectional sofa with a queen pull out bed.
