Resonating with architecture from the past while encompassing the best of contemporary comfort and technology, the Piedmont estate is crafted within a pristine private setting of 22 acres of gently rolling meadowland and individually designed gardens. Within easy driving distance to the world-renowned Research Triangle Park and Piedmont Triad, the property is served by Raleigh-Durham and Piedmont Triad International Airports. An entrance court of granite cobblestones leads to hand-carved mahogany entry doors that open to a dramatic foyer with curved double staircases. The drama continues throughout the expansive main living area highlighted by trussed and vaulted ceilings, Brazilian cherry floors and woodwork, two soaring fireplaces, and a full gourmet catering kitchen with copper, marble, and granite surfaces. The firelit master suite with elegantly appointed his-and-her baths and spacious closet and dressing area offers a secluded retreat. Outside, a terrace with private cabana and fireplace overlooks the infinity pool, whose cascading waterfall backdrops a lower-level terrace and bocce ball court. Equestrian easements and a spring-fed pond edged by tall evergreens and other native plants perfect the final touch on graceful country living.
