The North Carolina community of High Point is known for well-crafted, high-end furniture. And locally, a stately red brick and clapboard Colonial house with black shutters at 165 High Point Lane in the Greenfield Hill area is known for its well-crafted construction.

Built in 1966, this house has an old world feel with new accoutrements. It was upgraded and updated to include many modern amenities for day-to-day living and all the entertaining that the house and grounds can accommodate. There is a 20-by-44-foot heated Gunite in-ground swimming pool with a built-in spa and waterfall. Take a good look at the pool. Its edges are not straight but have decorative corners. There is a large bluestone and red brick patio with a built-in Viking grill and built-in fire pit. The state-of-the-art wireless sound system includes outdoor speakers.

This house sits on a quiet cul-de-sac and its private 2-acre level property offer refuge from a busy world and yet it is only about 10 minutes from the Merritt Parkway making for a convenient commute.

In the design of this house, careful thought was given to ease of use and to streamlining seasonal chores. One prime example is the location of the laundry room on the main floor. It can be accessed from a hall off the kitchen but also from a door on the rear exterior wall so that family members and guests don’t have to bring wet bathing suites and towels into the main house. They can go right into the laundry. This hall also has a full bath with a shower. A door to the basement allows for easy storage of patio furniture.

Inside, there is 4,788 square feet of living space with generously proportioned rooms and an easy flow from one room to another.

The covered front entrance has columns that are repeated in the spacious foyer which holds a decorative winding staircase. The wide front entrance has French doors flanked by sidelights with leaded glass.

The formal living room has a bay/bow window and a marble fireplace. The family room also has a fireplace encased in one large wall of red brick from floor-to-ceiling. There is a third fireplace in the unfinished basement. The family room features a vaulted ceiling, wide-planked and pegged hardwood floor, built-in bookshelves and a wet bar with a new wine refrigerator and glass shelves for storage of stemware.

Pocket doors separate the living and family rooms, and there is a sliding door from the family room to the new three-season sunroom, which has a slate floor and ceiling fan.

In the formal dining room the flooring is teak parquet with inlaid detailing. It also has a bay/bow window, a hand-painted design on the ceiling and a wall of hidden china cabinets.

The cook’s kitchen is large and features an oversized center island with breakfast bar and prep sink, granite counters, ceramic tile floor, farm sink, eat-in area, built-in desk area, Viking Professional four-burner gas range, convection oven and a hand-painted mural above the range.

At one end of the first floor of the foyer is a half bath designed to resemble a jewel box. The other end, which has the laundry room and full bath, features pantry closet and an office that could also serve as a guest bedroom.

Above the garage is a large bonus room with wall-to-wall carpeting that has flexible use as a billiard or game room, play room or home theater. It has two built-in window seats with storage underneath.

Upstairs, there are four bedrooms, all with walk-in closets. The master and one other are en suite. The master features a sitting room and bath that has a limestone floor with sand glass inserts and old-fashioned claw tub.

Belgian block aprons mark both entrances of the semicircular driveway, which provides ample parking for family and guests.
