This weekend I got to tour a dreamy Nantucket style home that was just built and sits – shockingly – in Raleigh, North Carolina. This home was open to the public as part of the Parade of Homes in my area. It did NOT disappoint!
This is a three part series sharing three newly built homes I had the pleasure of touring. This is part one of three.
I shared some videos on my Instagram account but those stories disappear after a few hours. When I was in the planning stages of our new build home I was always taking screenshots of new homes! I thought it best to put all the photos here where you can also pin them to Pinterest and refer to them later.
A Classic Nantucket Style Estate in Raleigh, NC
This post will be picture heavy – but nobody came here for my thoughts, right? 😉

This Nantucket style home has a rather New England exterior, don’t you think? Although the street the home sits on is filled with other attractive homes, this exterior is unique to our area and stands out. The home immediately brought me back to our family vacations in Cape Cod.
If you’re wondering if this Nantucket style home, built by Annis Mangrum is without the New England price tag, I’ll let you be the judge. This home is priced at $1.9 million and is a 5 bedroom with 4,503 sq feet. It has a prime location for our area – right inside the beltway (meaning, convenient to everything), on a gorgeous tree-lined street surrounded by other beautiful homes.
Although the cost of living and homes in Raleigh (in general) is lower than the rest of the US, this home is nestled in the best location you can get for proximity to what Raleigh has to offer.
A Wood and White Kitchen
White pearl marble used in the kitchen.
I noticed the island ran perpendicular to the open living room. If you are planning a kitchen island to be situated this way, consider adding barstools on two sides. If you create seating like in these photos, the kitchen will feel more open to conversation.
That gorgeous flooring is 7″ width Norwegian White Oak flooring. The medium stain fits the meeting of modern and traditional style this house offers.
You can read all the details about how great white oak flooring is and see my white oak floors in this post!
Hello high back chairs that look like a million bucks and are from Target!
How charming is the built in kitchen nook with a built in bench. Again – traditional meeting modern.
Wallpaper in a butlers pantry? Yes, please! The contrast of the darker cabinets, a different tile than the kitchen, and fun wallpaper set this space as its own room from the kitchen. Another space with built in pantry shelving is located on the opposite side of the cabinetry wall.
The living room opens to the covered back patio. The porch ceiling is wired for heaters (brilliant!) and makes use of skylights. This helps the interior of the home also receive more light.
I noticed the interior of many of the windows are dark, and white on the outside to keep the more traditional, Nantucket style home feel on the exterior.
This rug was so beautiful that I peeked at the designer on the back. It was not plush but also not thin- it felt soft and looked very high end, and the price was surprisingly good! Thanks to the reader who pointed out this can be found on Amazon. You can find this gorgeous rug here:
The light fixture makes this room! Below is the splurge (seen in the home) and a save version:
I appreciated the detail of a dark railing on this traditional staircase, even though the treads match the flooring.
We have the Darlana lantern in our own entry and it’s a classic. This is a light that will never go out of style, as other trends come and go.
This house is full of little thoughtful details – like this charming bookshelf built into a recess the hallway.
Similar picture light:
Off the double doors on the second floor is a den/playroom with a wet bar and open shelving.
There are more bedrooms down the hall. I had to snap a picture of my daughter and I in the cute bathroom! She likes coming along on these tours too.
Back downstairs, the master bedroom is located in the back of the house just off of a small hallway, giving it some privacy from the rest of the home.
The light fixture is minimal in a sophisticated way, but still the center of attention. Very romantic in a bedroom.
Wasn’t that gorgeous? The address is 2610 Churchill Dr, and last I checked it was still for sale.
The second part of this three part series of newly built homes in my area will be published later this week.
