Southern Pines house description

Top of the Hill was featured in the February 2014 edition of Pinestraw Magazine. Totally private, sprawling, one level Mid-Century Modern three bedroom two bath home, on two woodsy and beautifully landscaped acres of 50 year old azaleas and camelias in Southern Pines, NC. You can’t see any neighbors - its like being in the country, yet minutes to the heart of town. Totally quiet and peaceful, a bird lovers paradise.

Top of the Hill was built in 1958 and designed by Thomas Hayes, an architect who taught at NC State at the time. It is featured in www.trianglemodernisthomes.com as an example of North Carolina mid-century modern architecture.

Furnished unlike any vacation rental house with four generations of family antiques and quality beds, sofas and upholstered pieces.

Cooks will be delighted by the large and very well equpped kitchen and library of cookbooks.

This is my second home and as such it reflects my interests in design, architecture, gardening, cooking, entertaining and living well. I hope you enjoy it as I do!

The main living areas have original redwood shiplap ceilings and terrazzo floors. The living room has a wall of glass providing stunning views of the Pines, deck, gardens and sky.

The kitchen in all new and equipped for the serious cook or entertainer and every convenience for guests on the go. The laundry room has new front loading washer and dryer.
The foyer has glass walls that create a space that seperates the bedroom wing from the bedroom wing, and a view of a Japanese garden.
The dining room seats 6-8 and opens to a side patio with propane grill.

The bedroom wing is carpeted, each bedroom is very well furnished and equipped with every convenience. The beds are all high quality and linens are provided.

The grounds are stunning with 50-plus year old plantings by a Landscape Architect who worked with Thomas Hayes. There is a hammock, a bocci set, a big deck with dining table and lounge chairs.

There are two drives, one to the garage (garage no included) and the other very large drive for guests proving parking for ten or more cars for a party.

This home has just been repainted inside and redecorated with valuable family antiques. I am only interested in sharing my home with people who will respect it and treat it with care.



Big living room with Terrazzo floors, flat screen TV with Bose sound, cable and DVD system and a wall of glass looking out on big deck with lounge chairs and a dining table and chairs with umbrella. Huge yard, mature gardens full of 50 year old azaleas, camellias, magnolias and other lush southern plants, surrounded by pine forest. Enormous fireplace. Formal dining room seats six to eight, looking out on separate patio with gas grill. New fully equipped kitchen including 6 burner stove, microwave, refrigerator and ice maker. Three bedrooms including one with queen beds and one with a double bed separated by full bath with combination tub and shower and dual sinks. The third bedroom has a queen bed and adjoining hall bath


Top of the Hill is a unique,stylish and fun property located minutes to Broad Street, (the main street of Southern Pines) where there are many excellent restaurants and shops, and ten minutes to the center of Pinehurst Village.

                              With over 400 holes of golf, Moore County North Carolina is the home of Golf. Southern Pines is a charming town of 10,000 people with a picturesque main street lined with shops, restaurants, a bookstore, and theater. Located 10 minutes from Pinehurst, Southern Pines is a step back in time.

                              Golf: Moore County is the Home of Golf in North Carolina. Top of the Hill is located within 10-15 minutes of the Pinehurst Resort, Mid-Pines Resort, and many area golf courses. Check out Home of Golf dot com for more information.

                               

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2006

                              About the owner: I am a Fort Lauderdale native and a Realtor in that area. My family is from coastal North Carolina. Top of the Hill is my second home. I recently furnished it with family antiques, art, books and other beautiful and valuable things not usually found in vacation rental homes. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

                              Why the Owner Chose Southern Pines:
                              I love the smalll town atmosphere of Southern Pines which was founded as a resort town after the Civil War. Of course the big draw here is golf, but for me, being an hour from a major city (Raleigh) and hours from the beach and the mountains makes this ideal

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              It surprises most people that North Carolina has the third largest concentration of Mid-Century houses in the US after California and Illinois. This is thanks to the design school of NC State that attracted architects and landscape architects of Modernism to thier faculty starting in the 1950's. This home was designed by Thomas Hayes, one of those Architects and is a true gem of its period. I love the mix of 50's modern with antiques. Watching the sun come up behind the Pines through the wall of glass in the living room is heaven to me!
