Built in 1922, the historic Greenlaw House is situated in the heart of Chapel Hill on renowned Franklin Street, just 4 blocks from the University of North Carolina (UNC) campus. The home is named for noted UNC professor Edwin Greenlaw and is built in the traditional southern colonial style with 2.5 stories of living space and a full basement offering great storage. Professor Edwin Greenlaw and his wife Mary, commissioned the renowned architectural and engineering firm of Nash and Atwood to design the home.
Arthur Cleveland Nash, chief architect of the firm, is best known as campus architect for UNC during the school's major expansion in the 1920s. His major works at UNC included the Beaux-Arts Louis Round Wilson Library, Memorial Hall, the Georgian Revival Carolina Inn, the original Kenan Stadium & Field House, as well as several of the fraternity houses built just west of campus and the State Fairgrounds Exhibition buildings in Raleigh.
The home features gracious living and entertainment areas, quarter sawn oak flooring, 2 sunporches, 4 bedrooms and 4 full baths. The home is fully renovated and has a finished third floor with vaulted beamed ceilings that offers great office, recreation or craft space. There is a full unfinished basement with excellent storage space. The grounds include thousands of trees, shrubs and perennials as well as quaint stone paths and stacked stone walls. There is also a guest house that was constructed in 2001.
