a tranquil lifestyle in the heart of Hickory
This 1947 Georgian Revival masterpiece is located in ‘The Pines,’ one of Hickory, North Carolina’s most desirable locations. This neighborhood, known for its mature trees and larger lot sizes, is within walking distance of vibrant downtown Hickory and Lake Hickory Country Club. A recent renovation by Glaze Construction, which was featured in Traditional Home magazine, focused on keeping the details of a bygone era while utilizing a more modern aesthetic. The result is a serene and inviting living space in this grand home. Stepping into the foyer, the abundance of natural light welcomes all who enter. The main level features a mix of formal and informal areas, perfect for entertaining, or enjoying tranquility.
The kitchen features period tile, a large marble island, a restored 1936 Magic Chef gas range and the original walk-in cooler which has been converted to a pantry. The large utility/laundry room is adjacent to the kitchen and includes an additional dishwasher and abundant storage space. An oversized island makes for a wonderful folding table or craft area.
Three bedroom suites are located upstairs, including the primary suite. Marble flooring, tile and tub surround make an elegant statement in this generously sized bathroom. The primary closet is an organizer’s dream with abundant storage, appropriate lighting, beautiful cabinetry, counter and washer and dryer hookup.
The lush grounds enjoy mature landscaping including many hardwoods, crape myrtles, boxwood, azaleas and ferns. The formal garden is one of many outdoor areas which owners and guests will enjoy. The very private backyard boasts a gunite pool and soaking tub as the focal point. An entertainer’s dream, this outdoor living space includes multiple patios and a cabana for dining al fresco, enjoying solitude, or hosting lavish events.
The detached 3-car garage offers storage for multiple vehicles, while a storage building, designed with the same aesthetic as the home, allows for functional storage.
