Retreat, built 1895, was one of the thirty eight original cottages erected by James Walker Tufts during initial construction of the Pinehurst Village. It's a contributing property to the Pinehurst National Landmark designation.
A total restoration was completed on Retreat in May 2016 where the cottage was returned to its original Folk Victorian exterior design. The extensive interior remodel maintained the historical character of this single story jewel, yet added modern amenities and updates. As a result, Retreat was awarded the Gold Medal in the "Excellence in Remodeling" category by the Moore County Home Builders Association.
At the time of renovation Retreat was furnished and decorated with antiques, period reproductions, and plantation shutters - the floors are heart pine wood with occasional rugs. The open kitchen was fully equipped with high end appliances. granite countertops, a large island, and a 40" Samsung swivel mount LED TV. All bath and shower areas were fitted with subway tiles and granite counter tops. The TV room, kitchen, and 3 bedrooms were equipped with flat screen LED TVs with Direct TV satellite feed - including the NFL ticket. Secure cable high speed internet with Wi-Fi is also provided.
A major highlight is the 45’ x 10’ front porch with swing, rocking chairs, and a Chippendale style seating area – complete with 3 ceiling fans. Great for relaxing and watching the dog walkers and joggers go by.
