Property Description:

Unquestionably one of the finest estates in all of NC, this exquisite property, with its nearly 11,000 sq. ft. home resting on over seven acres of beautiful grounds, is in Durham’s exclusive, gated Hills of Rosemont enclave. Combining Old World elegance with today’s revered ambiance of relaxed luxury, this is a legacy estate, built, and recently significantly upgraded, by master craftsmen. Utmost privacy and serenity are assured by the home’s thoughtful placement within the estate grounds. Framed on three sides by heavy stands of verdant trees, beyond a sprawling lawn and long, horseshoe driveway extending through a porte-cochère and around to the spacious 3-car garage, the French country-inspired abode conveys a regal yet welcoming bearing. When viewed from the rear, this beautiful estate is nothing short of magnificent…spacious verandas, multi-level terraces, a seductive pool and spa, and a wonderful cabaña. All are complemented by fabulous landscaping including manicured lawns. It is from this vantage point that one truly realizes the expansiveness and refined luxury of this world-class home and its grounds.
