This is something! The 12.16 acre property has a beautiful home built in 2008, a restored 1840s farmhouse and a 1850s deconstructed barn that was moved to the lot. Truly an estate for the ages.
Surrounded by Duke Forest, this almost 13 acre treasure offers quiet privacy only minutes from Duke, DT Durham or Chapel Hill. Truly a work of art, the primary residence includes a deconstructed 1850’s barn relocated to NC & setting the stage for this carefully curated home completed in 2009. A separate restored 1840’s farmhouse provides an additional 2BRs/2BA plus LR w/fp, full kitchen and screen porch. The main house incorporates historic elements of clapboard, a staircase, stone, brick & beams rescued from a beautiful old house in Halifax, Va. Gorgeous flow for entertaining. Magnificent stone fireplace. Incomparable heart pine woodwork. Pretty baths, bookcases, open kitchen/scullery/ barn doors. Enormous storage in garage walk-up & under house walk-in. Ancient trees shade this land grant parcel of Couch family heritage. Established gardens include stone and brick hardscape, retaining walls, a meandering creekbed and koi pond lovingly planted with specimen favorites and next generation trees. Deer fencing & irrigation protect the large vegetable garden. Rolling pasture welcomes children and pets to play freely.
