5300 Castlebrook Drive, Raleigh, NC 27604  

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
