My Notes

Every now and then, an opportunity arises that is unexpected and outside the scope of your current search. For only the 5th time since it was built in 1838, Pine Hall has come to the open market? 5300 Castlebrook Drive Although this was undoubtedly the original home in the area, the surrounding acreage was subdivided into numerous horse properties some time in the 1960?s by the Weaver family. The Foxcroft neighborhood is now a very desirable estate community that complements the historical nature of Pine Hall. Castlebrook Drive is a gorgeous canopied drive off of Buffaloe Road, just inside of the Interstate 540 loop, and about ? mile to the west of the Neuse River. Foxcroft consists of a mix of large estates and horse properties. There is direct access to the Neuse River and the Mountains to the Sea Trail that crosses the river to the south of the community. Too many times, the valuable context of an historic property falls victim to encroachment and neglect. For the past 150 years or so, Pine Hall has been carefully curated and maintained, and even upgraded, all within its original context. While the area has gentrified from its original farming roots, and the suburbs have crept out from the city center, this property retains everything grand and stately of its plantation days. Misty mornings on the back porch, tending the garden plot, the crunch of gravel as guests arrive, the patina of the wide plank wood floors, can you feel it? And all within a few minutes of downtown Raleigh? The feel of this home is evident as soon as you pull through the gated circular drive - the home rests under the protection and shade of huge white oak trees at the edge of an expansive lawn. Though the grandeur of the property is palpable, the home itself is stately and simple. There is no need for excessive landscaping or extravagant detailing - the home is welcoming and impressive on the merits of its own patina. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2006, and proclaimed a Raleigh Historic Landmark in 2010. As notable as it is, Pine Hall is simply a fantastic place to live. The double doors open from the entry porch to a wide foyer. The historical detailing is evident immediately and your guests will pause to absorb the impact of the space. There is a gorgeous mural of the original property flanking a set of leaded glass doors depicting a pair of the past beloved family members. Through these french doors, and located at the rear of the home are a wide open sunroom, that leads to a wrap-around porch. The sunroom is also connected to the open kitchen and breakfast room. The kitchen is completely modern and there is more than enough counter and cabinet space. There is a screened porch directly off of the kitchen that leads to the garden and backyard. Still in the original main part of the home, there is a grand staircase in the entry foyer that leads upstairs to two very large bedrooms and a full bath - it is amazing how large these bedrooms are for a home this age. Each of these bedrooms have fantastic views to the front and rear of the property, and the closet space is more than adequate. Downstairs from the foyer, there is a fully finished basement. This basement has a family room with fireplace, as well as a large game room. There is also an amazing unfinished workshop space and bathroom. Directly off of the lower family room is a real treat - a complete underground model city and miles of scale train track, completely powered and animated. As you might expect, every corner of this home has a story - it is inadequate to describe it with mere words and pictures. The lifestyle that this home allows is the real gem - the home is really best experienced in person. Give us a call for a private showing!  More Less

Market guide

Zillow predicts 27604 home values will rise 2.8% next year, compared to a 4% rise for Wake as a whole. Among 27604 homes, this home is 495.6% more expensive than the midpoint (median) home, and is priced 40.8% more per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In 27604, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 63% higher than in Wake, and 18.4% higher than the national average. This higher local number may prevent 27604 home values from rising as quickly as other regions in Wake.
