Description

It all began in 1928, when Mrs. Helen A. Lohmann of New Haven, Connecticut, and her mother, Quaker Oats heiress Mrs. J. H. Andrews, commissioned Alfred B. Yeomans to build a 26-room English Tudor Manor House in Southern Pines. Yeomans, a local designer and relative of the famous Boyd family of Weymouth, Southern Pines, oversaw the project completed in 1930. The magnificent home was later dubbed Duncraig Manor by the 2nd owners, Dr. & Mrs. George Matheson, who had ties to Duncraig Castle in Scotland (which was built by Alexander Matheson in 1866). As part of the Southern Pines Historic District, the home was added to the Department of the Interior's List of Historic Places in November of 1991. In 1990, Duncraig was chosen as a ''showhouse'' by the American Society of Interior Designers. The century-old integrity of the historic house was carefully maintained during the restoration. Restorations were made in 2018 and 2019 by local craftsmen and artisans to retain the original integrity of the design. Master gardeners were consulted on the cultivation of the English-style gardens and grounds. When walking the grounds, one will find many picturesque settings, including a vine-weaved path that leads to a tea house and perfectly trimmed grass surrounding the lily pond. 3 separate living quarters; the main house, an apartment above the garage, plus the carriage house. With the property totaling around 13,000ft2, the main house includes 11 bedrooms, 8 full baths, 3 half baths, a library, spa area, a chef's dream kitchen, office space, a large dining room, morning room, plus so much more. Above the 3 car garage, you will find a 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment with a kitchenette. There is also a stand-alone 1 bedroom Carriage House with a full bath and kitchen. Ample space to entertain; 2500sqft Pavilion, multiple large patios, an inground pool, and meticulously maintained grounds of 4.14 acres. Located in the Highly desirable Weymouth Heights area of Southern Pines.
