Southern Pines NC, 28387


Own a piece of PINEHURST HISTORY with this stunning home built in 1929 by Donald J. Ross, the legendary golf course designer. One of the first five homes in historic Knollwood Heights, this property is conveniently located near Pinehurst No. 2, Mid Pines and Pine Needles - three of Ross' finest creations. The stately facade is reminiscent of a Scottish manor house, which is appropriate given Ross was born in Dornoch, Scotland and began his career at St Andrews in 1899. Christened ''Dunross'' by the current owners, the gracious 2.3-acre estate features a 6000+ sq ft main home, carriage house with a one bedroom, two bath apartment located above a three-car garage, and an 1900 sq ft workshop devoted to the husband's passion for vintage car and motorcycle restoration. The property offers a spectacular setting for outdoor entertaining with its extensive gardens, magical nighttime lighting, multiple brick terraces and walkways, koi pond, massive wood-burning fireplace, and outdoor kitchen with new built-in natural gas Viking grill and refrigerated drawers, plus a two- burner gas cooktop and sink. Children adore the treehouse and enjoy having a special place to call their own. Gardening enthusiasts will love the hundreds of azaleas, camellias, gardenias, and hydrangeas that blanket the estate. The romantic Victorian greenhouse imported from Belgium is perfect for nurturing seedlings for the 36'x38' raised bed vegetable and flower garden. The lighted maiden fountain at the center of the garden welcomes a steady stream of pollinators and provides a relaxing backdrop for enjoying cocktails in the garden seating area adjacent to the greenhouse. Maintenance of the grounds is made easier with two RainBird irrigation controllers, configured into thirty plus zones with hundreds of sprinkler heads, all fed by the property deep well with 220-volt submersible pump. A solid wood Tudor arch door with unique "Speakeasy" style window welcomes all who enter Dunross. From the foyer, one enters the elegant living room, accented by original 12" crown molding, hardwood floors, and an offset fireplace, conveniently updated to remote-controlled natural gas. An identical fireplace can also be found in the adjacent Carolina room, along with breathtaking views of the grounds. The fabulous chefs' kitchen easily accommodates an intimate dinner party or a full catering staff with its Viking Professional gas range and nearby warming drawer, Gaggenau convection oven with a special baking stone for pizza and breads, a Sub-Zero built in side-by-side refrigerator plus under counter double refrigerated drawers in the island, KitchenAid dishwasher, disposal, two sinks, and miles of marble countertops. The lovely dining room, lit by a gorgeous crystal chandelier and showcasing two lighted corner cabinets along with stunning crown molding, is perfect for larger or more formal gatherings. Serve pre-dinner cocktails in the bar overlooking the rear brick terrace and fireplace. Mixologists will love the built in Scotsman ice maker, under counter refrigerator, sink, and marble countertops, along with enough shelf space to hold hundreds of bottles or stemware. The screened porch with newly installed outdoor awnings, ceiling-mounted infrared heaters, and remote-controlled clear Fenetex screens offers the ideal spot for morning coffee or anytime relaxation. Ascend the graceful staircase, accented overhead by an Italian Rococo 25 light chandelier, to the second floor master suite, two large guest bedrooms connected by a Jack and Jill bathroom, one additional guest bath across the hall, and office space perfect for "work from home" due to its direct Ethernet connection, abundant shelving, and privacy provided by double entry French doors. The master suite clearly dominates the upstairs floor plan with its generous dimensions, remote-con
