August 2015 HOM - Chung House

August 2015 Home of the Month

1011 Parker Street
Home of Vincent and Sarah Chung

Built in 2014, 1011 Parker Street is a new addition to the University Park neighborhood. Vincent’s a native North Carolinian and Sarah’s originally from Rochester, New York. We met as longtime residents of Chicago, Illinois.

Vincent lived in the University Park neighborhood while attending NC State; after returning for a visit, Sarah fell in love with its tree-lined streets, walking proximity to Cameron Village, and beautiful architecture.

We purchased the property from Vivian Irving: civil rights activist, Raleigh Hall of Famer, and owner of the historic Irving-Swain Press. With a deteriorating foundation, plans to build upon the existing home proved fruitless. For our new construction, we wanted a craftsman bungalow to match the block and preserve the aesthetic integrity of 1011 Parker Street’s previous incarnation.

For our home, Architect Jody Brown craftily adapted a modern bungalow design he created for a Durham infill project. Rusty Caudill of Caudill Design Group meticulously executed the plan, and creatively realized many of the finishing touches. Caudill showcased the house in the 2014 Wake County Parade of Homes, so perhaps you’ve already seen it up close.

We’re excited to be part of the community and to meet our new neighbors!
