BIG, BEAUTIFUL ,EXECUTIVE, SOUTHERN COLONIAL HOME IN GREAT LOCATION

Raleigh House Rental Photos and Description

great property for weddings, family get togethers

In addition to its big,spacious rooms, this home has 3&1/2 acre lawn with a stocked pond (bass,brim,channel catfish) for fisherman in your group. Super sun room overlooks lawn and pond, Gazebo at pond for relaxing, fishing, feeding fish (food provided)Very private, tree lined but situated 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. Large,eat-in kitchen- adjoining dinette. Wet bars in library & huge family room on lower level. The gazebo is charming setting for weddings & house is large enough for fun reception. An extra plus for reunions and/or weddings is next door neighbor who caters traditional, delicious North Carolina pig picking ,fried chicken & all the trimmings.

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.

Older, retired folks w house that is too big. Spend a lot of time in southern Florida but when in NC, occupy a private suite with own entrance, deck, etc. Cannot see or hear guests and vice versa. Diligently respect guests privacy but are available if any problems.

The property provides wonderful entertainment areas..is close to many interesting, beautiful and historical NC places. It provides space and furniture for family enjoyment...antiques retired & replaced with 'family friendly' furniture. Wonderful sun room overlooks the pond & grounds. Grill for outside grilling. House is fully furnished including kitchen. All you need is your suitcase.

So for comfort in an elegant home this is place for you and your family.

Many family gatherings have taken place as well as wedding parties & families, international, professional teams, business/corporate retreats, very versatile facility.

Stocked pond & fishing allowed. Brim, bass & channel cat fish.

Quiet,private.

Next door neighbor is caterer & available for your events - rehearsal dinners, reunions, pig Pickins, the full spectrum of food needs for your event.

Have had several weddings where gazebo was used as altar. Accommodated 160 guests but room for more. Special event fee is $500. - any event that brings more people than staying in the house is considered a special event.

Stocked pond, circular driveway, big lawn for croquet/horse shoes etc. but bring your own equipment. Unique as this property has been landscaped to provide privacy but is near other homes. This development is surrounded by city but has good 'country feel'

Development is site of old plantation & plantation house restored- almost at the end of our street. Privately owned and occupied. Not open to public.

Nature trails & city park w huge new aquatic center very nearby - also has 2 to 3 story water slide. Nominal daily fee for non residents.

Shopping, state fair grounds, universities within 15 minutes. Duke & UNC about 25 minutes via interstate.

Serene atmosphere but near all the city amenities.

Great home for guys golf trip

  • 5 of 5
We traveled from Texas for the US Open at Pinehurst and to play a number of golf courses in the Raleigh area. The house and property was very spacious, quiet, accommodating, and perfectly located. The pictures do not really do this house justice. From enjoying watching sporting events in the sun room to fishing from the gazebo, we had a blast and this house exceeded our entire groups expectations. If we make it back to the Raleigh area, we will be staying here again without a doubt.

Wonderful accomodations for a large group "reunion"

Wonderful accomodations for a large group "reunion"

Our group came from Florida, Alabama, Colorado, Washington State, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, and Ohio for a wedding. We hadn't seen each other in a few years. The house has so much space, and so many different rooms to sit and visit. We spent most of our time on the porches, well into the evenings. We fished. We played cards. The pictures do not do justice to the accommodations! Everyone had so much privacy. We would be thrilled to go back again. Thanks!

We celebrated our son's wedding in Raleigh while staying in the home. We hosted the rehearsal dinner for over 100 guests. The house was very clean upon our arrival, and very accommodating. Much lovelier in person than shown online. The property hosted a wonderful evening and the catered bar-b-que was enjoyed by all. Norma and Carroll were great at answering all our questions and always prompt to respond. You won't regret your decision in choosing this home. We would certainly come back should the occasion arise. Thanks, Norma and Carroll. Diana

We were very pleased with the house and it's location. It was also a great setting for our daughter's luncheon for her bridal party. A great way for our family to be together to celebrate.

Nice Home Rented for Wedding Weekend

  • 4 of 5
Great home and great location. Rented the home to house a few guest during my daugthers wedding weekend. We also had a small outdoor rehearsal dinner with a live band. The house was absolutely beautiful for this outdoor event overlooking the pond.

Norma was very nice and accommodating and we really appreciate how she went out of the way to ensure that the grass was cut and the yard was sprayed for mosquitos. The neighbor is a caterer and catered the rehearsal dinner and the food was great and he was very nice and helpful.

Car: necessary

Surrounded by the city but country 'feel'. fantastic location for access to all important NC sites. Must see old state capital in center of downtown and Queen Anne historic governors mansion. The art museum is a must as well. While you are there go treat yourself to some warm Krispy Kreeme doughnuts & coffee. Photos in process. Sorry about delay.if you are reading about heat wave,no problem as 2 large central air conditioners are keeping house at comfortable temperature! (Caretakers/owners reside in small private area of property & are available to meet your needs)
