The 1924 white stucco Georgian Revival home built by furniture magnate B.F. Huntley for his family of eight was designed by the renowned Philadelphia architect Charles Barton Keen, aided by local architect William Roy Wallace. Landscaper Thomas Sears designed the original 18-acre grounds. Charles Barton Keen is best known locally for his design and building of Reynolda, home of R.J. and Katharine Reynolds, now Reynolda House Museum of American Art.
The Huntleys owned the home until 1948 when part of the property and home were sold to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Raleigh, NC, for a Catholic school. In 1976, the current owners bought the home and restored it to its original grandeur. The home and grounds have been very well maintained and are in excellent condition.
The Cottage originally was the three-car garage with chauffeur’s quarters plus a basement which housed an auxiliary coal boiler to heat the main house and chauffeur’s quarters. The Cottage was totally renovated in 2019. This is a one-story 1,543 square foot stand-alone cottage. The original Green Ludowici-Celadon Tile Roof was removed during renovation and re-installed.
The house and property are NOT under any type of National Register and/or Local Historic Landmark designations.
