This elegant residential estate on 15.23 acres is located two miles from revitalized historic downtown Goldsboro, North Carolina (incorporated in 1847). The Farm is 30 minutes by car from I-95 and I-40; 60 minutes from downtown Raleigh; and 90 minutes from Wilmington and other major NC coastal areas. Features of the estate in addition to the 10,000 square foot mansion are a garden composed of azaleas, camellias, dogwoods, pecan trees and other classic Southern vegetation. The remaining acreage includes a 50-year old stand of tall pines and cleared fields used mainly for parking.
The Farm replicates the Lady Pepperell Mansion (ca. 1760) in Maine and was constructed in 1970. Its colonial parlor was designed by Fairfax and Sammons of New York City and Palm Beach, a premier historical architectural firm. It was inspired by the Lady Pepperell main parlor. The mansion contains many elements originally installed by the acclaimed interior design firm of Otto Zenke such as draperies, light fixtures and wall treatments. Heart of pine flooring and a hand carved stair case from Vernon Hall Plantation (ca. 1830), a significant antebellum Wayne County plantation, unique molding and brick flooring are other distinctive interior features.
