Rougemont, North Carolina, Estate of the Day
Today's estate was brought to my attention by Luxist reader Kelly who was curious about this huge estate in the small town of Rougemont, North Carolina. She reports that she has flown over and driven by this huge property and was curious about it. Me too! Especially after I did some digging and saw it in a gallery of the hottest homes in North Carolina compiled by Businessweek last year. The curious thing it that the approximately 15,000 square foot home on over 200 acres was listed at $7.763 million. Flash forward to now and it's listed at $15.5 million making it one of the pricier homes in the state and far outpacing anything else in Rougemont. A year ago it was still under construction but is now freshly completed. It has an impressive long entry that takes you past ponds and over a stone bridge before reaching the home's circular driveway and large fountain at the top of the hill. There are five bedrooms and five baths with four additional half baths. The property includes a pool which is flanked by a huge pool house and what looks to be an open pavilion for entertaining. The pictures on this one don't give a lot of clue as to what's inside but the few shots we do have reveal the beige luxury that seems pretty typical of other new large homes that we've seen lately. If anyone has any info on this home please feel free to add it in the comments.
