Step Inside The NC Home Clay Aiken Is Selling For Less Than A Million Dollars

Clay Aiken is an American singer and actor. According to The Famous People, he was born Clayton Holmes Grissom in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. In 1983, at age five, Aiken performed for the first time at a high school dance. In 2003, he placed second in the globally known television show "American Idol." Later that year, his debut album was released. Throughout the years, he has released more music, made his acting debut with several more appearances, and received several awards. Now, he is making another life change by selling his home.

Located in Raleigh, North Carolina, the singer has listed the home for just under one million dollars, per Realtor. He purchased the home just four years ago in 2018 for close to $655,000. The house was built in 1994 on 1.24 acres of land. A pool, basketball court, and several decks are just some of the fun exterior features. Sitting at around 4,277 square feet of interior space, this home includes many rooms and features such as three bedrooms, three full-sized bathrooms, one half-bathroom, and a game room.

The pool and basketball court

Some of the best parts of this property are the outdoor amenities. The backyard features a large pool, according to the Zillow listing. It sits square within the far corner of the yard along a privacy wall. To its side is a cabana that contains an outdoor seating area. The entire area is paved with tons of space perfect for lounge chairs, umbrellas, and even another seating area. 

The large basketball court is located on the other side of the yard and in front of the garage. Though it isn't a full court with professional markings, there's a hoop at one end, the furthest away from the garage, with plenty of space to play pickup with friends. Behind this hoop is a small strip of grass that leads into the rest of the yard. Behind this grass strip, the privacy fence continues from the pool and wraps around to the garage.

The living room and game room

The living room is spacious and modern, per Zillow. It features a simple color scheme, with dark wood flooring and pale blue walls. Two French doors lead into the yard, with elliptical windows just above to let in natural light. Between these two doorways is a standard-sized white fireplace with sleek black hardware. Over on the adjacent wall is a built-in entertainment center.

The game room within this home is just as impressive as the living room. The flooring and the ceiling are identical to the family room; however, the walls are painted a neutral tan. Two double-sided windows sit on one side of this room, while a double-sided doorway is located on the adjacent wall. Though narrow, this room can hold a lot of entertainment features. Of course, this room is excellent for any use. An office or another bedroom are just a couple of possibilities.

Master bedroom and bath

The master bedroom, like most rooms in the home, is spacious, according to Realtor. It has a simple color scheme with tan carpeting and light blue walls. Two double-sided doors sit in one corner of the room on adjacent walls for porch access and natural lighting. There's also a seating area big enough for a full sofa and ottoman in the corner.

The master bathroom is perhaps one of the most appealing rooms on this property. Upon entry, the shower is located to the left. Built at an angle, the shower features natural-looking stone flooring, walls, and trim. Next to the shower is the bathtub, built into an elevated surface lined with more stone details. The relaxing spot has a window right above to let in natural light. The rest of the walls within this room are painted a calming shade of blue similar to the master bedroom.
