Pinehurst's leading lady, Thistle Dhu, is back! Don't miss your chance to own this architectural jewel that has maintained her place in the Sandhills golf history for over a century. Constructed in 1919, the James Barber family created a memorable retreat like no other. In 2017, an extensive renovation refined this luxurious mansion by restoring the historical finishes, improving overall layout, and updating utilities. Improvements continued in 2020 with a new CertainTeed Pro Series roof. Walking through the impressively manicured lawn (which happens to hold the world's first miniature golf course!), the Palladian archways welcome guest into the stately living room that winds past a gaming corner, wood-burning fireplace and into a study, which is naturally lit by the adjoining glassed-roofed solarium. The original built-in glass door cupboards and period moldings in the formal dining room capture the historical grandeur reflected throughout the rest of the house. The gourmet kitchen is serviced by a prep-kitchen, and both boast top of the line appliances, quartz countertops, a breakfast nook and plenty of storage. Guests will feel welcome in their main-floor private wing with a large living area, private bath and laundry room. Upstairs, the expansive owners' suite is divided by his/her bathrooms and has an impressive dressing room, outfitted with drawer banks, shelves and a center island. The additional 4 bedrooms, all with uniquely designed private baths, share an impressive living room gathering space with kitchenette and an additional laundry room.The lower level has a fantastic, large recreational space with a secret entrance to a masterfully crafted bar. The detail and artistry of this ''Speakeasy'' reflects the time period's exquisite attention to detail. Finish your tour of Thistle Dhu by taking the brick path through the gardens to appreciate the fountains of ''The Summer House'' (gazebo).
