Description

Convenient to Duke, UNC and even RTP, this Modernist FAIA award-winning Dail Dixon masterpiece was recently featured in Dwell magazine. "The Davidson Residence (1990) is one of my very best projects ... which makes my heart skip a beat." (Dail Dixon) Contemporary, serene, filled with windows looking upon 150 acre Lake Orange in an idyllic setting close to everything. A perfect home for a professional, couple or small family. Our quiet, private community lake is an ideal place for paddle-boarding, kayaking, canoeing and recreational fishing. If you live here you don't need another vacation property: this is a place where you can clear your mind to solve problems, find inspiration, improve your well-being or simply relax. Just 5-7 minutes away, downtown Hillsborough is a charming, historic town known for its scenic beauty, graceful period architecture and convenient location close to major highways. It is a haven for artists and writers, and has a great farmers market every Saturday. Downtown Hillsborough has a wonderful coffee shop, an independent bookstore, a superb wine store and an organic grocery store, among other gems. Hillsborough is easily commutable to Duke (professors built the house), UNC and RTP. The Raleigh airport is 40 minutes away. The house is equipped with the latest high speed fiber optic Internet. Available furnished or unfurnished. Most furnishings are from Property Furniture in NYC, Sferra linens from Italy, contemporary art work throughout. Bonus: Comes with fully plumbed Italian La Cimbali espresso machine. Here are some quotes from recent tenants: "This hidden gem is drop dead gorgeous. OMG, the pictures can't do it enough justice." "On a quiet lake, immersed in nature, in the most beautiful house I have ever stayed at ... what more can I say? WOW." "This stunning home, perched on a wooded ravine with beautiful lake views, is incredibly special and inspiring. Even though I was working, I felt like I was on holiday - every day."
