Property Description

S. Brown Shepherd did his homework. The prominent Raleigh attorney had purchased a beautiful, estate-sized lot for his family’s new home, and given the complexity of his project, Shepherd needed a construction dream team. He entrusted the design to renowned architect James Salter, whose portfolio included the Eure House, Olds Elementary, and the Sir Walter Hotel. To realize Salter’s vision, Shepherd teamed with James Davidson, one of Raleigh’s finest builders, best known for constructing the Cox-Williams house (”Mount Vernon”) in Hayes Barton, White Memorial Church, and Pine State Creamery. Completed in 1928, this landmark home has belonged only to a handful of families, each stewarding its original beauty and craftsmanship. One of the home’s most unique and beguiling features is its da Vinci-esque octagonal foyer (the famed artist obsessively incorporated the shape into his architectural drawings), which serves as both the visual and functional hub of the home. The current owners faithfully carried the torch with a sharp kitchen renovation, a stunning lighting package from Visual Comfort, and a sweeping backyard transformation complete with saltwater pool.For those yearning for the irreplicable character of an historic home, you’ll find it here.(c)
