Large,eat-in kitchen- adjoining dinette. Wet bars in library & huge family room on lower level. The gazebo is charming setting for small get togethers- house is large enough for fun brunches: wedding party lunges, etc.An extra plus for reunions etc is next door neighbor who caters traditional, delicious North Carolina pig picking ,fried chicken & all the trimmings. There is an event fee of $250 for guests not staying at the house up to 25 people. We are no longer able to accommodate larger parties due to gov ordinance (Parking is limited) and HOA limitations
This subdivision was once a plantation. The plantation house still exists & is just 'up the road' from the property on Castlebrook Drive. 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. 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.
(information provided at the house for best routes,etc.)
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 University Campus also well worth the drive.
It is a stunning campus (rumor is that Washington Duke took his architect to Princeton and said: 'build me that') The Duke Chapel, a classic Westminster style, boasts many 'claims to fame' ;i.e. an organ that took the expert from the Netherlands more than a year to install on the million dollar balcony Duke had constructed to accommodate the organ. 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. Your college basketball fans will know about the Duke Blue Devils and their number 1 ranking year after year. Unfortunately, tickets to Blue Devil games are very difficult to get. If lucky, you may be able to see the Duke Women's highly ranked basketball players. Call Duke Sports office to inquire about same. Sunday services at Duke. UNC is home of a terrific basketball team also.
This property is only about a mile and a half from a city park where tennis courts are available.
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.
Charges are$350 per night with a 3 night minimum; plus $200 cleaning fee; plus REFUNDABLE damage deposit of $500.
Any questions: call Norma 772 618 0105
We have had weddings ( up to 160 guests) & large events in the past. We are not booking any weddings or big events at present as we find large groups cause stress on us- on our property - & neighbor's. If you would like to plan an event you should talk it over with Norma to see if they will accommodate you.
As Homeaway blocks contact information, you may send a message via email which will go through Homeaway to Norma.
Thanks for your interest in our property.
