842 Mill Creek Road is located within the Croatan National Forest. It is the epitome of high quality construction and care that has been put into a home built for comfort and relaxation. The house was originally built by the current owners. Every aspect of this home has the mark of craftsmanship and quality. 842 Mill Creek Road is a 3 bedroom, 2 ½ bath home sitting on ¾ of an acre. The total square footage of the main house is 1,824 square feet.
One of the first things you will notice as you walk through the front door and main foyer of this home are the high ceilings and open floor plan. The living room is spacious with a gas log fireplace, large windows, ceiling fan and skylight. All of the doors and window frames are solid wood.
The latest upgrades include fresh interior paint, brand new carpets and laminate flooring, stainless steel kitchen appliances and newly updated bathrooms.
The kitchen flows from the living area and is segmented by a large bar and lunch counter top. It comes complete with food pantry, new stainless steel appliances, beautiful oak cabinetry with lazy susan, accent lighting above and under the cabinets and easy to clean tile floor. The kitchen is built in an ever expanding angle giving you room to cook and entertain in.
The kitchen flows right into the dining room area. This spacious area is located by a bay window bringing in plenty of natural light.
Directly offset from the dining room is the laundry room and a half bathroom. This also leads out to the two car garage and the finished room above the garage more commonly referred to by its acronym, a FROG. The FROG is heated and cooled and has a ceiling fan and storage closet. This room has been used for a variety of purposes including as a guest bedroom.
But before we go any further we must describe one of the many unique attractions 842 Mill Creek Road has to offer. Just off of the kitchen and dining room is a step down sunken sunroom. This highly unique room is perfect for privacy offering you comfort and views of the backyard. And if you want to feel even closer to the great outdoors but without the hassle of insects, adjacent to the sunroom and just off the back porch is a screened in sitting room. Sit and relax and enjoy summer breezes or cool winter nights.
Let’s move back into the main house. The master bedroom is facing the backyard and offers comfort and privacy. Just off the master bedroom is the master bathroom which comes in three separate sections. The first section is the large double vanity with two sinks. To the left of this room is a very large and spacious walk in closet. To the right of the double vanity room is the toilet and shower. The shower is finished with beautiful tile, river rock flooring and built in stone seat.
The second and third bedrooms are down the hallway from the master bedroom. Both are similar in size and both have spacious closets. There is a full bathroom with toilet, vanity and sink, tub and shower that is adjacent to these two bedrooms.
The backyard is fenced in and quite large. Certain aspects of it have been landscaped and modeled so as to enjoy being outdoors. There is a running water fountain amongst a rock garden and a courtyard/patio area with a fire pit. You can sit under the shade of the trees during the day or enjoy the fun and warmth of the fire at night.
The two car garage with automatic garage door opener is beautifully finished with an easy to clean floor. There are two storage closets, and access to a high crawl space from the garage. The garage offers direct access to the house through the laundry room to the kitchen.
We’ve saved one of the most unique features of 842 Mill Creek Road for last. It’s the best man cave ever! This is a separate out building from the house. It was designed so that someone could tinker with a work project, work on a motorcycle or just sit back and enjoy watching cable television. This man cave is 431 SqFt and is heated and cooled. It comes complete with everything you could possibly want, including a full size refrigerator, microwave, mini-oven, sink with running water, storage cabinets and lots of counter tops! Attached to the man cave outside are three separate under roof sections for things like lawn equipment, lawn mowers, leaf blower and many of your yard and garden tools.
Beside the home and the man cave there is a section designed for your camper and boat. A large portion of this section is paved and comes with its own electrical plug/power outlet to power up your camper or recreational vehicles.
842 Mill Creek Road is heated and cooled by a Geothermal heat pump system. Geothermal heat pumps take advantage of the constant and moderate 55 to 60 degree temperatures that lay beneath the earth’s surface. Regardless of how cold or hot the air temperature is, the ground temperature below the surface stays constant. Geothermal heat pumps use a piping system called a “loop” that circulates underground to harness the consistent ground temperatures. This provides heating and cooling much more efficiently and with lower operational cost than with a traditional air heating and cooling system. The loop system has a life span of about 50 years. The Geothermal pump has a life span approximately twice that of a traditional air system.
The Main Differences Between Geothermal and Air-Source Pumps:
- Energy efficiency
- Life Span/Maintenance
- Cost Savings
