My Notes
Gimghoul Road is an iconic winding lane adjacent to east side of the scenic University Of North Carolina campus. It is home to some of Chapel Hill's finest architectural masterpieces and home to a storied stone castle, steeped in the secret traditions of generations of North Carolina's leading citizens. Gimghoul Manor sits on over 2 manicured acres adjacent to Gimghoul Forest, the historic castle property. It is a custom built residence that combines the classic architecture of the past with the conveniences of modern features. Gimghoul Manor was constructed by local contractor Leon Meyers in 2008. The design was by noted architect Eddie Belk whose goal was to create a warm and inviting home with grand open rooms and ideal spaces for entertaining. There are no details neglected in the design and creation of this Chapel Hill masterpiece. The warmth of the home touches you the minute you enter the spacious foyer and see the dramatic 12-foot ceilings, the detailed 4-piece crown moldings and the circa 18th century leaded glass doors that define the formal dining room. The rich heart pine of the antique leaded glass doors and the marble accented fireplaces, create a unique atmosphere for entertainment in the formal areas of the home. The genius in the design of the residence is its ability to entertain large groups while at the same time, providing privacy for the owners. Large hallways, spacious rooms with multiple access routes and both indoor and outdoor space allow the opportunity for entertaining large groups or functions. While at the same time, rooms such as the master suite, study and den are all secluded and very private.The custom design and construction of the residence created the opportunity for the owners to select the finest materials in all of their selection decisions. The use of cherry, mahogany, carved Brazilian cherry and antique heart pine bring warmth and richness to the interior of the home. Marble highlights all of the 7 fireplaces as well as the kitchen sinks and the baths, showers and vanities of the master suite. The detailed moldings are custom designed, the doors are all solid wood and even the unique kitchen windows were custom designed to be more functional. The "fait accompli" is the tapestry of colors, fabrics, material and fixtures that embody the décor of the residence. The interior design, crafted by noted designer Pam Heavner, is simply spectacular. Despite the diversity of materials, everything has a home and a place and it is woven together in a disply that can certainly be recognized as one of the most enduring homes in the state of North Carolina!  MoreLess
