Champion West: The Laurel


For the 2023 Parade of Homes, Herring Homes is presenting its Laurel floor plan. This spacious townhouse, located at 15 S. Lenny Street, greets guests with a white exterior accessorized with black accents and a richly stained arbor over a single-car garage. Inside, over 1,500 SF awaits the personal touches of its future owner.


Enter the Laurel from a quaint front porch, the perfect spot to enjoy a cup of coffee while embracing the day. The lower level features a bright and airy floor plan with a half-bath just off the foyer. With an open-concept layout, the kitchen, dining, and family rooms merge into a huge gathering space that is perfect for entertaining. The kitchen features a generous island overlooking the family room that is guaranteed to be a favorite spot to prep food, complete homework, or catch up on the news.


Upstairs, three bedrooms offer several options for use. The owner’s suite includes a gorgeous bathroom retreat which includes double sinks and a large walk-in closet. Two additional bedrooms can be used traditionally or as an office, home theatre, or crafting space. Laundry is conveniently located on the second floor, eliminating the need to haul baskets up and down the stairs.


A charming backyard can be accessed via the family room as a quaint patio beckons homeowners to enjoy the beautiful seasons found in central North Carolina. A bonus storage area sits just off the back patio, providing the perfect hideaway for decorations or gardening implements.
