Nestled among tall long-leaf pines on thirty five acres, contiguous to one of the most exclusive golf clubs in the country, lies a special retreat in the heart of Pinehurst. The 11,531 square foot, multi- building compound hosts ten bedrooms, eight full bathrooms, four kitchens, eight fireplaces, three laundry rooms, numerous patios and sitting rooms, a 12- foot deep pool and one "Great Room". This is one of the most unique properties in North Carolina. The history, amenities and location make the C. Louis Meyer Farm one of the most sought after private retreats anywhere in the country. The famed private Forest Creek Golf Club, (hosting members such as Michael Jordan, Johnny Bench and Roy Williams) was developed and founded by the owner of this historic site. After a long and winding drive through the tall pines, one discovers a charming, bucolic farmhouse that was originally built in 1895, renovated in 1930 and totally remodeled in 1999. The charm of the late 19th century home is enhanced with all the modern features of today. Chicago based and renowned interior designer, Madeline Gelis was flown in to master-mind the contemporary and world class interior make over. You will find original wide plank heart of pine floors, rich heart of pine-raised paneling, and an inviting mix of fabrics, tapestries and family memorabilia complimenting the historic structure. In 1999, the master wing was renovated and a master suite was added, complete with cathedral ceilings, accompanying the 1930's sitting room, office and exquisite bath and laundry with private exit to pool. Included in the renovation was a spectacular "Great Room" modeled after the original loggia or "Bottle room" only larger, with soaring ceilings, banks of floor to ceiling palladium windows and a stacked stone wood burning fireplace. Adjacent to the original farmhouse is the charming Hideaway Cottage built in 1930 and completely remodeled in 1999, which adds four additional bedrooms and three full baths. You are immediately introduced to an inviting, sunny and colorful kitchen and living area. The Hideaway adjoins the pool and patio, which are ideal for outdoor entertainment. Below the Hideaway is the Garage-Mahal, an immaculate four-car garage with imbedded living space. This home was constructed in 2008 and features two additional bedrooms, two and a half baths and a powder room. It has a spacious family room with dining area, fireplace, cathedral ceilings and a kitchen. The Garage-Mahal features spectacular artwork and showcased by a state-of-the-art wine cellar, tasting room and a fully operational fitness room with a fireplace. This property is an integral part of Pinehurst's gloried history. The farm was originally purchased by C. Louis Meyer, a concrete icon from Chicago. Meyer bought the property in 1942 as a vacation retreat for his family. He was an avid equestrian and his wife was an avid golfer; both lifestyles which fit seamlessly into the Pinehurst landscape. Over the years, Meyer acquired over 3000 acres, making him one of the largest landowners in the community. The Meyer family has long been known for their philanthropy in Moore County. A wing of Moore Regional Hospital was gifted by Mary Meyer and thousands of acres of the property have been donated to provide a home for the Sandhills Community College, O'Neill School and the nearby Moore County airport. The property has remained in the family for nearly 80 years. This historic property is ideal for the buyer seeking a corporate or family retreat. It offers pristine Sandhills scenery, total privacy and numerous opportunities for entertainment. In addition to the deep water pool, there are several patios, a log cabin and an 8-stall horse barn. The location between Forest Creek Golf Club and Pinehurst #6 is incomparable. It is truly Pinehurst's finest.
