Perched on top of a hill on a private, 2 acre lot in Wake Forest, this one of a kind, Victorian inspired home built in 2008 exudes luxury, warmth and understated elegance. Experience Southern Living at it's best with an inviting wrap around porch, a covered patio and a magical 9 window turret. The area is surrounded by high end custom homes . Enjoy the songs of nature, dine al fresco by the porch with flowers and veggies/herbs from the garden, dance under the stars or on a moonlit night.

America has given a lot of people the opportunity to have a better life. Our family is blessed to be one of them. All the sacrifices that people before us made to give us the peace, freedom and lifestyle our family now enjoy is something I recognize and feel grateful for, everyday.

Through hard work, persistence and perseverance, the proverbial American dream has been somehow realized. Because of my huge family, I needed a place where I could enjoy the family. This beautiful land came to light, thanks to the Marshall Family, on what was then a forested area of the western side of Wake Forest. Mom wanted a wrap around porch and I wanted a turret because of the amount of natural light that comes from it and the view it gives of the outside. Reeves Spainhour, a great local, custom builder with a big heart ended up building this beautiful Victorian home for which we are eternally grateful for.

Over the past 12 years, the number of family members who lived permanently in the home waxed and waned. In 2015, it was decided to share this American Dream with others in this vacation rental platform. It truly has been heartwarming to see other people enjoy the home even just for a brief period of time.

Chateau d'Amour means a Castle of Love. The turret gives it the castle feel, a common remark from guests. The main purpose the home was built is love of family. The French version is adopted because the one place I love to visit again and again is Paris, the City of Love. Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors without Borders) which originated in France stood by my hometown Guiuan, Philippines after it was destroyed by Typhoon Haiyan in 2013. The home has been a gathering place not just for family but friends, clients and colleagues spending time with together having fun and enjoying each others company. Hence, the name.

The space

The one thing that is noticeable about this property is, despite its size of 5,348 square feet, it is far from overwhelming. It's circular floor plan gives one a warm welcome. It has all formals, a rotunda in the center of the home with a dome ceiling. There is a 2 story family room, the circular room on the second floor called the Turret and a sitting area in the owner suite. One can have karaoke in the family room and another could be playing piano in the formal living room, the rest could be dancing in the moonlight in the outside dance floor and no one overrides the other. The house is well divided and insulated to be able to enjoy the spaces meant for.

Watching the cherry blossoms and azaleas in spring come up, hummingbirds feasting on bee balm flowers, monarchs & sparrow tails feeding on the butterfly bush from the comfort of the spacious wrap around porch is a joy sure to warm your heart. Squirrels running about the yard, dragonflies chasing each other, fireflies dancing around at night, crickets, cicadas and the daily avian songs giving you a feel like you’re in a bird sanctuary. We have two bird feeding stations so the property is full of NC birds like the cardinals, chickadees, finches, hummingbirds, eastern bluebirds, doves, Sparrows and several other birds who are voracious eaters.

There is a telescope where you can clearly look at the moons surface and a pair of binoculars to watch the birds.

Chateau d'Amour perfectly expresses a luxurious, yet casual lifestyle. The sculptural facade and expansive verandas create an image of comfort and warm welcome. Upon entry, you are greeted with a dramatic 80-foot view axis through the rotunda to the family room fireplace. The convenient circular floor plan provides easy access to the den and formal living room, while connecting the kitchen and formal dining via the butler’s pantry. Connecting you from the family living areas to the outdoors is the covered outdoor dining and BBQ porch. The rotundas circular stair leads to the spacious master suite retreat. A guest suite, two other suites sharing the turret and a large media room with a sink complete the upper floor.

Guest access

Guests will have access to all areas of the home except for the downstairs office, large master closet, the storage room off bonus and the detached garage. Only the two car of the attached 4 car garage can be used as it's the entertainment room where the pool table and pingpong table, workout places are.

Interaction with guests

I will personally welcome you into the home and make you feel at home. I will give you a tour highlighting things you may not readily notice. This is the only time you will see me. I will check on you the next day via text to make sure you found everything ok. After that, you will be left alone. You can call/text/email me anytime and I will make sure to respond right away. You will also be given the numbers of my other siblings in case you can't get a hold of me.

Other things to note:

The Owner Suite has a king size bed. The second bedroom has a queen size bed with a twin trundle bed. The other two rooms beside the turret both have queen size beds. The Bonus room (bonus) has a queen pull out sofa which could sleep two, a chaise and another section of the sofa which could fit two more. Note that there is no bedroom on the first floor. There is an office which will be locked.

There is a gym area in garage by the pool table which has an elliptical machine, a weight machine, a treadmill and a mini trampoline. We also have a ping pong table and poker game.

The air filters are always brand new for each new guests. We also make sure all high touch areas are sanitized before leaving the home.

The homes kitchen appliances were just recently upgraded (Dec 2020) with brand new 48" SubZero fridge, Wolf stove, microwave and oven and a Cove dishwasher. These are top of the line appliances.

The property is also now gated with a custom designed wrought iron fence. Right now, it is manually operated. Please close it before going to bed at night for extra security.

Our water source is from a 200 ft deep well which has been tested for lead, nitrate and nitrate. A Westinghouse water filtration system was just installed in Sept 2021. The home was also tested for radon gas. All results showed no problems. Our grass is a combo of wild grass and Bermuda. We don’t apply any chemical fertilizer on the grass.

Last November, major improvements were added to the home. Coffered ceilings, crown, chair rail, wainscoting, built-in cabinets, stair case lighting, all around the home landscape lighting, new trees and bushes. The quartz kitchen countertops and the beveled, subway marble backsplash with Mother of Pearl accent tile were just installed in October 2021. Homes interior was freshly painted in Nov 2021.

Chateau d'Amours' traditional beauty highlights a floor plan designed for flexible family living, winning Best of Show honors at the 2003 Seattle Street of Dreams (17 out of 22 awards) and a 2004 Best of American Living (BALA) award.

Since most of my family have moved on to their own homes, I am now an empty nester. Villa Banika has given us a lot of happy memories. It is just really beautiful not to share with others which is why I've listed my home here. The excitement I feel about traveling and discovering new places and meeting new people makes me feel young. Places like Austria and Hawaii are the ones I would love to visit over and over again. My biggest passion of all is family. I am blessed with a huge family and I like to keep us close. Your renting the home not only give you the opportunity to enjoy the beauty Villa Banika offers and treat it like it were your own, it also allows me the flexibility and freedom to keep and maintain the home for social and family events throughout the year for this family and future generations to come. Thank you for choosing to stay at Villa Banika.
