Raleigh, NC, US
6452 Therfield Drive
Imagine arriving at the entrance to your property where you get that special feeling knowing you can cruise down a lengthy, beautiful tree lined driveway. You arrive at your home perched on a hill overlooking Falls Lake. There are very few properties that can offer such a stunning view of Raleigh’s recreational lake. The Army Corps of Engineers abuts the property which adds countless acres of privacy. The best of both worlds exist here; you have the security of an established high end neighborhood with the feeling of an estate. The lot is 2.40 acres yet has the feeling of a much larger parcel.
Enjoy the serenity relaxed on the grand veranda overlooking your private salt water pool. Unwind after a hectic day, launch your kayak and go for a paddle around the lake. Live your life inspired each day in your placid surroundings. The lovely landscaping encompasses extensive outdoor living areas. Admire your border garden along the brick lined sidewalk, subtly illuminated by the landscape lights on your way to a beautiful covered porch.
The stunning foyer with arched cased openings, is wide and spacious. The Brazilian cherry hardwood floors add to the home’s high-quality trim and transoms. The dining room, with a hand-painted mural, is large and will host many celebrations. Enter the living room where you have exceptionally tall ceilings, built in bookcases and a limestone fireplace. The abundant windows with remote-controlled shades allow you a view of the lake and set the mood. The kitchen is well appointed with Thermador © appliances. The large granite island will be the go-to spot for entertaining. There is also a butler’s pantry and a large walk-in pantry. The laundry is oversized and allows for a lot of storage. The garage has a handicap access design.
The piece de resistance has to be the superb covered porch overlooking the pool and the lake. The tall tongue-in-groove ceilings boast paddle fans to make this a peaceful and pleasant retreat. This is such a breathtaking setting. There is also an open area to the porch for grilling or catching some sun.
There are three bedrooms and an office on the main level including the privately situated master suite. The spacious suite includes a large, “open” glassless shower. The vanity space is substantial and a large closet completes the picture. One of the bedrooms has a handicap shower. The other bedroom has an en suite bath. The office is lined with built-ins and has double French doors opening onto a stunning courtyard complete with a fountain and a brick fireplace. It is hard to imagine getting any work done in that setting! The second floor takes you to a bedroom with a full bath. There is a massive walk-in attic which could be finished if desired.
The basement does not disappoint with a large office & extensive built-in bookcases. The rec room is spacious and overlooks the pool area. There is an additional room which has a full bath, accessible from the pool. The large pool is low maintenance salt water and has LED lighting for that "wow" effect. The fountains just add to the magic! There is an automatic cover for safety and the pool recently underwent a $21,000 up fit. The climate controlled wine cellar adjoins a state of the art media room. This media room has a “Lucas THX Theatre” sound system complete with painted daytime clouds/nighttime star light murals. There are eight luxurious black leather seats. No detail was overlooked! There is an additional two-car tandem garage in the basement built for a possible third car or a workshop.
