2005 Rolling Rock

2005 Rolling Rock Road in Wake Forest North Carolina is on the market.

Truly rare opportunity to own a unique super-cool property.  Roaring 20’s arm-in-arm with New Media 90’s.  A custom-built 1997 Luxury Home married to an amazing 1920 tailored Granary.  The 3-floor robust Granary larger than the younger elegant Home.  Careful consideration was given to design aspects and placement of the home relative to the historic Granary.  Now you can stroll between decades via a windowed vestibule.  This fine complimentary pair is perfectly situated on 3.27 prime acres in prestigious Wakefield Estates.  Very convenient to the shores of beautiful Falls Lake, McConnell Tournament Players Club at Wakefield Plantation Clubhouse, Wakefield Barn riding stable, great schools and shopping.

The Granary is one of two structures remaining from Wakefield Farms.  Wakefield Farms was a massive farm/dairy operation with buildings dating from the mid 19th to early 20th century.  Farm operations started winding down during the 1950’s.

Massive Wakefield Barn is the other historic structure remaining Wakefield Farms.  Presently used as an equestrian center, it’s also a Wake County Historic Landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Home and Granary

The home boasts thoughtful design aspects and wonderful upgrades.  Over 5,100 square feet with 5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, thoughtfully laid out to exhibit a variety of ceiling treatments, open stairway, private sitting areas, large deck and screened porch.

Main floor hosts the master suite with double closets and an oversized Kohler soaking tub.  Gourmet kitchen is outfitted with Canac cabinetry, Sub-Zero Pro 48 Refrigeration, Miele Dishwasher and Aga Cooker.

Both formal and informal living rooms contain fireplaces.  A separate breakfast room, formal dining room and laundry complete the main floor.  A 3-car garage is accessed from the kitchen.

Top floor has a large second master suite with adjoining office (or nursery) and two guest rooms sharing a Jack & Jill bath.  A landing/sitting area overlooks both the formal and informal rooms below.

Bottom level of the home is designed for family living/in-law suite.  It’s accessed via an oak staircase from the main level or via it’s own grade level exterior entrance.  This level of the home contains living room with fireplace, a family room with kitchenette, bedroom, full bath and second laundry room.  All door openings are 3 feet wide.  Enjoy separately controlled heating and air conditioning.  From here there is access to approximately 1500 square feet of unfinished basement with concrete floor and poured in-place concrete walls.

The Granary is heavy timber construction courtesy of trees at the farm.  It still houses some interesting original equipment and is connected to the home via an enclosed slate floor breezeway.

The multi-floor Granary is unconditioned and currently sports a 3-season “man cave” in the section closest to the home.  Uses of the Granary are limited by imagination.  Suggestions have included – storage for automobile collections, artist studio, home business office, wood working…etc..  It can certainly accommodate more than one idea.

Would love to hear your thoughts.

Allmand Holmes House

Greek Revival beauty built in 1856 known as the Allmand Holmes House.  In Clinton, NC – Halfway between Raleigh and the North Carolina Coast.
Listed on the National Register of historic places.

Perfectly situated on a stunning one acre lot in the historic district and walkable to downtown Clinton.  Enjoy living in rare elegance provided by this extraordinary home.  Pamper family and friends with the pleasure of large graceful porches – upstairs and down.  Behind the home, and included in the sale, are 3 other structures – the interesting original smoke-house and two guest houses.

Some updating is needed but the numerous original architectural details are astounding – including paneled wainscot, intricate staircase, Greek Revival door and window surrounds.  Five of the six fireplace mantles are Greek Revival and one front parlor mantle is marble.

The original back porch was long ago incorporated into the house to accommodate a kitchen and den.  And the original kitchen off the back porch was converted into a garage.  There are good options for incorporating a modern kitchen, including reclaiming the original kitchen space.

Enjoy the photo gallery.  Contact me to learn more about this wonderful historic home.
Thanks, Paul
