Welcome to The Chaucer house!
The Chaucer house features five bedrooms four and a half bathrooms and 4237 square feet. It’s located in North Raleigh and is listed at $950,000.
When you walk into the double doors you come into a bright and airy foyer. Off of the foyer is the dining room, but we’ll come back to that later. First let’s start with the living room…
This light and airy living room would make Chip and Joanna Gaines so very proud! It’s the epitome of farmhouse design and I like the way it’s done. I think the living room feels very cozy and inviting don’t you?
This kitchen is stunning. I wouldn’t typically like how the range hood is designed here but at the same time it works. What I do love is the cabinetry going up to the ceiling with the thick crown molding.
The brick feature wall stands out against the white kitchen to set the breakfast nook apart.
I have two favorite spaces in the Chaucer house. This walk in scullery kitchen/ butler’s pantry is one of them.
Perfect for storing all of your serving ware and equipped with a prep sink and wine fridge.
The walk in pantry comes with more than just food storage, it also comes with a handy door to load groceries from the garage directly into the pantry!
I love all of the design details in this dining room. Just look at the beadboard planked ceiling! I also love the mill work with the wall trim.
If there’s anywhere you can get away with a more funky style floor tile it’s the laundry room. It’s a great way to add a little personality into an otherwise pretty boring room.
My second favorite space in this home is the mudroom. It’s so huge! I love the shiplap and the cubby storage.
And I love this chalkboard wall feature! This is a great spot to have a command center so everyone knows what’s going on and when.
The master bedroom is located on the first floor and has access to the screened porch.
Coming into the master bathroom you see the floating shelves and shiplap walls are continued in this space as well. You can have the details that make farmhouse design so popular while maintaining a brand new feel if that makes sense. Think of it as farmhouse chic with a modern flavor.
The zero entry shower is perfect for all ages. I don’t know why showers weren’t always made like this! And I love how deep the bathtub is too. The layout of this bathroom puts more of the focus on the vanity and shelves and I don’t mind that one bit because they’re so beautiful!
The master closet is equally as stunning and well thought out.
The screen porch is accessible off of the master bedroom, the living room and the breakfast nook. The fireplace separates an outdoor dining room from the outdoor seating space.
Upstairs on the second floor the remaining bedrooms as well as a loft, a play room and a media room.
At the top of the stairs you walk into the loft space that features these built in shelves. There’s also two storage spaces on the second floor, one of which you can see here.
I love the neighborhood that the Chaucer house is located in. It’s centrally located in North Raleigh with mature, heavily wooded lots. Also in this neighborhood is Franklin Manor. The Chaucer house is on just shy of an acre lot and for it’s location that is really a good amount of space. It’s why I love this neighborhood so much. You can enjoy the serenity of the neighborhood, feeling as if you’re outside of the city but you’re centrally located to all that Raleigh has to offer.
