Coldwell Banker Unveils New Global Luxury Logo

At last year's Gen Blue in Las Vegas, Coldwell Banker unveiled a brand new logo for the first time in 40 years. Dubbed the "CB North Star mark," this new logo symbolized Coldwell Banker as the leader in the real estate industry.  

Yesterday during the kickoff for Virtual Gen Blue 2020, another new logo was unveiled: the Coldwell Banker Global Luxury logo. "We are the North Star of real estate," said David Marine during the new global luxury unveiling. "We thought it was time to align our global luxury program with this new visual design as well."



Consumers already view Coldwell Banker brand as the leader in the luxury real estate space and find the new design as appealing, memorable, sophisticated and modern. While the logo may change, what we offer as a part of the global luxury program through Coldwell Banker and the standard of excellence that we hold to, must remain the same.

HPW Luxury | 404 N Churton Street

Few things compare to the feel and aura of a historical home.  The Turner-Strudwick House located at 404 N. Churton Street is steeped in history and is currently listed by Meighan Carmichael our Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston Hillsborough office.

As you walk up to the home, peonies and irises adorn the original cobblestone walkway and you are automatically taken back in time. Upon entering the house through the red double doors, you can't miss the heart pine floors and twin parlors off of the foyer.  Details abound the home including eight fireplaces, each of which were built with their own unique mantel. This historical home has one very unique feature that cements the era in which it was built. In those bedrooms with fireplaces, there are two closets, one on each side of the fireplace, a very quaint feature to this home. 

Built in 1833 by Josiah Turner, this 4,500+ square foot masterpiece sits on over an acre in Historic Downtown Hillsborough.  In 1889 Edmund Strudwick decided he wanted to reorient the house to face Churton Street. During this process, he enlarged the home adding the twin parlors, two upstairs bedrooms and an additional wing.  This new wing also included a porch which brought the total number of porches to three. Something that was practically unheard of at that time.

In 1922, Sheriff L.B. Lloyd bought the Turner-Strudwick House where it has remained in the family for several generations. The owners are now ready to share the next chapter in its storied history.

To see this house in all its splendor, sign up for the Hillsborough Candle Light Tour which will take place on Sunday, December 16th.  From 1 to 7 p.m. guests will be able to see the first floor of the home and from 7 to 9 p.m. a full open house will be held following the candlelight tour. For more details on this home and how you can enjoy a tour of this historic landmark in the heart of Hillsborough, contact Meighan Carmichael.
