Tucker Residence

Tucker Residence, Chapel Hill, NC

The client purchased the property at 410 Whitehead Circle in 2000. He immediately hired Bell Cline and began updating the house, built in 1956 and designed by Chapel Hill architect, Jim Webb. Wanting to remain true to the building’s era and architectural details, the house was updated by gutting the kitchen and updated with stainless steel counters, stainless steel appliances, natural cherry cabinetry and temperature controlled wine storage. The bathroom was changed to include a built-in shower with glass tile and frameless glass surround – a vast improvement over the pink mosaic. The lighting throughout the home was improved immeasurable by the addition of crisp stainless steel MR track lights and hanging Flos fixtures in the staircase. Overall, the house exuded a minimalist gallery feel. The project was completed by Bell Cline in 2001.
