Chapel Hill Home Rocks Musician's World

By: Amy Andorfer

Congrats to a renown musician and lovely family from Seattle, closing on a new home this week in Chatham! Click Here for a video tour of this home.

Blues/rock musician and song writer, Dudley Taft, of Seattle bands Sweet Water and Second Coming, was intrigued by this lovely custom home on 2.7 private acres nestled in Chatham county, with a Chapel Hill mailing address.

Built by successful local builder, Keith Dixon Building Co., this home offered both modern appeal and Craftsman detailing throughout the spacious 4363 s.f. Four bedrooms plus a fifth in the full, finished basement all have their own bath. Outdoor amenities include a covered porch and (in our neck of the woods) the all-important screened porch, this one with NC stacked stone fireplace, skylights, and flat screen TV with surround sound. Interior details included but not limited to...9' ceilings, handsome 4" hardwood floors throughout the main level, generous molding and wainscot, and a built-in entertainment wall (to store...maybe, a large collection of great music?)

Brought to you by The Andorfer Group, local knowledge to help you buy or sell your home.

Durham's Newest Entertainment Center - DPAC

Great article published by Duke University's "The Chronicle"...

DPAC brings $1.02 million to Durham

Although profits dipped slightly, the Durham Performing Arts Center is still a source of revenue and recognition for the Bull City.
DPAC earned $1.02 million for the city of Durham in the latest fiscal year, according to a preliminary financial statement issued by the city. As a premier theater venue, DPAC hosts more than 150 events per year and made a total of $2.5 million last year—40 percent of which went to Durham. Although Durham owns the facility, PFM/Nederlander serves as its management company. The 2009-2010 fiscal year yielded a profit of $2.9 million for the theater, slightly greater than the 2010-2011 fiscal year.
