Home is relatively close to every important place in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, Research Triangle area - N C State University, UNC campus & hospital, Duke University campus and medical center, RDU airport, major interstate highways- & easy access to downtown Raleigh, museums & art galleries - this is place to be.
This subdivision was once a plantation. The plantation house still exists & is just up the road from the property on Castlebrook Drive. Raleigh is situated midway between beautiful North Carolina mountains and spectacular beaches Drive 2 hours west to see mountains or 2 hours east to visit beach and the antebellum city of Wilmington - is still an active port city but most popular attraction is the battleship North Carolina moored across the river from the downtown Cotton Exchange shopping area. Has old South feel. Good restaurants on the water too.
Other: visit well regarded NC Zoo or Aquariums....or take a day trip to 'Straw Valley' home to several of North Carolina's renowned potters & their galleries.
NC State Campus is about 15 minutes from the property. It is the flagship campus for engineering ,textiles and design of UNC system - worth a visit. Just a short drive to Duke. The Duke Chapel, a classic Westminster style, boasts many 'claims to fame' Stained glass windows of deep colors - all the blue glass purchased from Blenko Glass & anyone who knows glass, knows Blenko. Don't miss the Sarah P. Duke Gardens that are maintained by many expert botanists so that each season the plantings provide a beautiful display of the flowers of that particular season. UNC is located in Chapel hill and is home of a terrific basketball team. You can visit the botanical gardens or the Morehead Planetarium for a fun filled adventure. Top of the hill distillery is also located in Chapel Hill and you can sip a few local brews!
This property is only about a mile and a half from a city park where tennis courts are available and the Neuse River trails are within walking distance. Neighborhood is fantastic for an early morning job or after dinner walk.
As stated earlier, there is sooooo much available in this area that listing everything here is a bit difficult but information will be made available at the house for your review and enjoyment. The seasonal changes are beautiful.
Thanks for your interest in our property.
PLEASE NOTE: We do allow ‘small’ events (reunions, birthday celebrations and even small weddings)
Please read the guidelines below to see if we can accommodate your event.
There is an event fee of $500 and can accommodate UP TO 25 people We cannot exceed that number of guests as city guidelines will not permit it. We are also on a private septic/well and it’s not equipped to handle large groups. Parking space is limited as we cannot allow street parking. There is no driving or parking on the lawn. Noise must be kept to a minimum and all music, celebrations must be turned off and toned down by 8pm. We live in a private neighborhood and most residents have lived here for many years. We like to respect the privacy of our neighbors.
Garbage that exceeds the provided trash cans (6 large bins) must be removed by tenant. The wildlife will make a big mess if garbage is accessible.
