Despite the fact that I once lived on in a condo on a golf course I tend not to be a fan of golf course homes. This one however, is quite charming. it is located in the Knollwood area of Southern Pines, North Carolina, nestled midway between the picturesque town of Southern Pines and the Village of Pinehurst, bracketed by the Donald Ross golf courses at Mid-Pines and Pine Needles. The Ivy Cottage was built in 1925 as a part of architect Aymar Embery's Mid-Pines Inn and golf resort. It sits on a hilltop overlooking the 10th and 11th holes of Mid-Pines, with views of three additional fairways. The Ivy House and Cottage underwent a massive renovation in 1995, turning the former Mid-Pines lodging quarters back into a residence.
The main house received a new cottage style entry that opens to a spacious kitchen. The kitchen opens to a breakfast room with French doors and a wall of windows with access to expansive tiered decking on the southwest side of the house. The home also has a formal dining room which overlooks the terraced deck and a brick floored Carolina/family room opens to a brick patio. A downstairs guest suite has anew tiled full bath and a dressing room. The second floor master bedroom has a master bath with Jacuzzi tub and there is an additional second floor bedroom. The guest house has been newly renovated and includes views of the 11th hole tee box and 10th fairway beyond. Glass French doors lead to a sun filled bedroom with fireplace and newly tiled full bath. Downstairs is a roomy bedroom/sitting area, also with full bath. A cottage style garden is between the main house and guest-house on one side and a view of the golf course on the other. This home is listed at $845,000.
