TOP OF THE HILL, PRIVATE MID-CENTURY MODERN ONE LEVEL FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT STYLE

Pinehurst House Rental Photos and Description

House - 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s) - 2 Baths - (Sleeps 4-8)

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.

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!

Rob Rose purchased this house in 2006

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

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!

Paradise FOUND!

My prior golf vacation rentals were in Pinehurst but this great house in Southern Pines has made me a total convert. The wooded setting is fabulous, you feel "away from it all" yet you're just minutes from downtown and Pinehurst and all the area golf courses (one of which, the Elks Club of So Pines, is about half a mile away and one of the best plays in the Sandhills). The house is spacious, bright and a great place for entertaining...both inside and out on the huge deck, and the neighborhood is upscale and a beautiful place to walk. I spent a month there and can't wait to return in the spring!

We Loved It

Top of the Hill is an ideal rental home in Southern Pines. The home is beautifully furnished and the entire property is a very pleasant place to spend time. The beds are all comfortable and we slept well. The kitchen is nicely equipped beyond what you would ever expect in a rental home. The owner is very responsive, both when you are arranging the rental and while you are on site. We'd certainly rent again without hesitation when we're back in the area.

Wonderful cozy place

We are a group of 6 cyclists who come every year in Pinehurst area for a spring training camp. This is the second year in a row that we stay at this place and we like it very much. This is a great location: close enough to Southern Pine and Pinehurst. There is a large back yard and you can't see neighbors. There are 4 beds but enough place to add one mattress. The house is beautifully decorated, well equipped with tons of amenities. You will find in the kitchen all the tools a real chef would required, including a nice gas stove. Beautiful patio with sun exposure all day long. We have been in a few places in that area and this house is definitely the best place we have been. We are looking forward to coming back next spring.

The Home Is Spectacular!

  • Submitted: Apr 2, 2012

Our family recently had a most delightful weekend at Top of the Hill. The home is spectacular, modern but filled with antiques and artwork. The kitchen leaves nothing to be desired. It is fabulous and a delight to cook in. The focus of the den is an 8 foot fireplace flanked by two sofas with a big screen TV wall mounted on which we watched Duke basketball. It is in a country club area, the lot is large and secluded with magnificent azaleas and camellias everywhere. Highly recommended!

Spectacular!

We had so much to concern ourselves with moving into the nearby area...the last thing we had thought about was where to stay while the movers did their work. We happened upon Top of the Hill and although the movers were a nightmare, our stay at Robert's gorgeous home was a dream. The kitchen has everything you need to address special diet and cooking needs, the bedrooms are comfortable and offer abundant privacy, and every important accessory is on hand (Wifi, cable tv, quiet places to read and on). Phone conversations are made more enjoyable ambling through the spectacular backyard. The home is impeccably maintained and designed, all of which contributes to what will always be a calming experience amid the storm that may be raging in your lives. A find!
