This historically significant house was named “The Pines” when it was built in 1913 by Frank Page. During Page’s tenure as North Carolina State Highway Commissioner, the state earned its title “The Good Roads State”. The house was designed by architect J. M. McMichael. He is known throughout North Carolina and the entire southeast for his many beautiful churches and houses.
The Pines sits on 16.92 acres of gently rolling land. Longleaf pines predominate in this Sandhills landscape. There are many camellias and azaleas surrounding the house. It is located close to both Aberdeen and Pinehurst—golf capital of the world. The house is 6375 square feet with an additional 2126 square feet of porte cochere, front porch, terrace, and screened porch. The partial basement is 1345 square feet. There is an original detached garage of 756 square feet.
The house has 7 bedrooms, 3 full baths and 2 half baths. Ceilings on the first floor are 12’ high; 11-6” on the second floor. The rooms are gracious and handsomely proportioned. The plan is organized around a bright central stair hall. The construction is masonry, wood (heart pine) and stucco on the exterior. The roof is the original barrel clay tile with membrane roofing on the low slope roofs. The first floor has carpet protecting the original heart pine flooring.
There is heat and central air on the first level only. The property is zoned Residential and is eligible for Special Use permitting to allow both B&B and event venue use. The house has been owned and lived in by a great nephew of Frank Page’s since 1965. In 2013, the property was reviewed by the NC National Advisory Committee and determined to be potentially eligible for the National Register. It was added to the Study List of potential nominations to the National Register. You need to visit The Pines to appreciate the rare luxury of space in this historic property.
