The estate was originally purchased by C. Louis Meyer, a concrete magnate from Chicago. He was an avid equestrian and his wife a golf enthusiast, making the farm the perfect vacation destination for the Meyer family. Today this is one of the most unique properties in the country because of its location, history, and amenities. It lies between the famed Pinehurst #6 and private Forest Creek Golf Club, which was founded by the owner of this historic site.
Life at the estate is unsurpassed. Though private, it is within easy reach of all things Pinehurst. The residence was planned in such a way that it can be enjoyed by a multitude of guests or by one or a couple. The main house is the original dwelling built in 1895 with wide plank floors and raised panel millwork of pine harvested from the land. The residence has been continually refined through the decades while still maintaining its grand historic qualities and charm. The master suite is a wing all its own featuring a sitting room, office, voluminous bedroom, spa-like bath, large custom walk-in closet, office, more than ample laundry room with powder room, and outdoor access to the pool just steps away. There are inviting guest rooms upstairs. With quality appointments at every turn the extraordinary formal dining room, charming breakfast room, and loggia with wet bar, are further enhanced by an unparalleled living space found in the gathering room with soaring ceiling, fireplace, and transom-topped French doors opening onto the pool on one side and a slate patio on the other.
The hideaway guest cottage offers complete luxury and comfort courtesy of four private guest rooms, three beautiful baths, laundry accommodations, full kitchen, and living room, all overlooking the pool and nature.
The four-car carriage house, affectionately dubbed the â€œGarage-Mahalâ€� is the ultimate indulgence. Car storage spaces offer finished floors, ceilings, and walls, are heated and cooled and even have central vacuum system connections. There are three levels of living space with a workout studio featuring wide plank floors and fireplace as well as a large laundry room. Leading to the upper level, the open stairwell and lighting offer the ultimate space for displaying art. Upstairs there are spacious great room with fireplace and cathedral ceiling, bedrooms, kitchen, and huge bonus room with exterior entrance to the grounds and pool. Perhaps the most decadent feature of the â€œGarage-Mahalâ€� is the wine cellar with cork floors, two large temperature-controlled wine storage rooms encased in glass. At the center of this Tuscan paradise is the massive yet intimate wine tasting room complimented by its own kitchen.
Come explore and experience C. Louis Meyer Estate. Truly Pinehurst's finest.
