TARA DEMESNE ~ executive estate with modernist flair
This impeccably designed executive estate is located on 103 acres with over 400 acres of additional land available. As you approach and enter the gated estate, enjoy a winding, private paved drive that carries you thru a covered bridge over the water to Tara Demesne. Before the home, lies a dramatic circular entrance with a bronze mermaid fountain and massive stone portico.
The modern home features an open layout with exquisite finishes of marble and glass. The private master wing overlooks a picturesque koi pond and seemingly endless gardens. Start your day in the gym, tack up your horse at the stable for a relaxing ride and later challenge your opponent to late afternoon tennis match. Socialize with your guests on the expansive porches and veranda and enjoy the private pool with swim up cabana. As your evening winds down, relax in the movie theater complete with a full bar.
The home is situated on a peninsula with views of the water from almost all angles. Outdoor features include a floating gazebo, dock for canoeing and fishing as well as extensive landscape design and manicured grounds with a greenhouse for your annuals. A key feature of the property is the almost 30,000 square feet of heated and cooled garage/shop space that can store over 250 cars or be repurposed. This magnificent property awaits you just 25 minutes from downtown Raleigh.
