Welcome to your ideal sanctuary. This exceptional estate sits on 13 acres (10 fenced) just 15 miles from downtown Raleigh. Inspired by the historic Hope Mansion in Windsor, NC with an updated design by renowned architect William Poole and exquisite attention to detail including 11' ceilings, French and transom doors, and extensive crown molding throughout.
A large motorized iron estate gate sets the tone while entering onto this unique property with a circular drive surrounding an island of sculpted hedges and a large bronze fountain, all standing before a two-story pillared porch over the entranceway to the home. Four large bedrooms, all with en-suite baths, plus two half baths, create plenty of space for any family. The first floor includes hardwood floors throughout and houses the owners’ suite, an open family room with a vaulted ceiling, large sunroom, formal dining room, country eat-in kitchen, an office or formal living room, and front and back foyers each with a staircase. Upstairs, there are three large bedrooms each with full bathrooms and walk-in closets, plus large exercise and game rooms.
Off the sunroom is a covered deck leading to a huge fenced brick courtyard complete with a stocked Koi pond, a seven-person Hot Springs jetted spa, and lush landscaping. The yard includes acres of grass, established decorative trees, a gazebo, a kids playground, a 12' x 25' year-round greenhouse, fenced nine-bed garden with irrigation, a vintage tobacco barn ideal for equipment storage, a separate large tool shed, and an acre-sized, wooded 'Asian' garden with 1/4 mile of walking/riding paths and several ornamental structures with a pagoda.
Relax in this luxurious safe haven away from the problems of the outside world. Enjoy the satisfaction and independence of growing your own produce, drinking your own wine and the peace of mind of that comes from having two deep wells, a whole-house generator, and over $100,000 in updates in 2020 alone, including a new roof, fiber-cement siding, and shutters.
The oversized three-car garage features built-in cabinets, a double sink, freezer, and a refrigerator, plus 3 French doors leading to the courtyard and a temperature-controlled storage room, perfect for a wine cellar! Finally, a 1,200-square-foot walk-up attic has been outfitted with plumbing and electrical and can be easily finished and made into the ideal bonus room or in-law suite.
If this is not enough land, a 2nd 12 acre tangential and buildable lot can be purchased separately to extend the estate to 25 acres.
