About 12900 Billingsgate Lane

Magnificent Billingsgate Estate

One of the finest homes in Raleigh, this stunning over 17,000 sq-ft residence, resting on nearly 1.5 acres, is an exceptional presence adjoining the gorgeous golf course of the exclusive Country Club at Wakefield Plantation. Commanding a cul-de-sac approach and introduced by a sprawling lawn and mature trees, the home incorporates traditional Federalist inspired architecture, state-of-the-art amenities, and uncompromised detail and craftsmanship.

Enter a Privileged Domain of Relaxed Sophistication

The imposing façade embraces a welcoming yet stately portico and flanking terraces. Custom double front doors capped with an impressive transom-style window open to the dramatic foyer, where a soaring 24-foot ceiling, resplendent crystal chandelier, inlaid tile floor, and gracefully curving staircase rising to a second level gallery combine in breathtaking harmony. The pièce de résistance of this glorious space, however, is a hand-painted panoramic mural by noted painter and sculptor Hans Boye Boyeson.

Off the foyer, the handsome sitting room invites camaraderie or quiet contemplation by the fireplace, while the fabulous formal dining room conjures possibilities of elegant repasts and memorable family meals.

A Singular Home Embracing Strength, Style, Substance and Soul

Throughout the home, both great and intimate living spaces, high ceilings with recessed lighting, Brazilian cherry hardwoods, double classic crown molding, abundant windows and French doors, multiple fireplaces, an elevator, and a central sound system create an air of relaxed luxury.

Nowhere in this special residence is that ambiance more apparent than in the Great Room where a celebration of natural light and exterior beauty is manifest via ten soaring windows reaching upward toward the 24-foot ceiling.

Sure to please the most discerning home cook, the state-of-the-art kitchen hosts stainless appliances, a versatile center island, and a striking stone surround showcasing the professional-grade range.

First-class Retreats for Family and Guests

The library is steeped in Old World tradition. Here, the classic coffered ceiling, floor-to-ceiling built-in bookcases, and Brazilian cherry floor combine to embrace one in the rich woods reminiscent of classic estates. Nearby, a spacious guest suite qualifies in every way as an alternative primary suite.

The second level gallery overlooks the foyer and Great Room and serves two bedroom wings. The guest wing provides four bedrooms – all with baths en suite. The luxurious primary suite occupies the entire second wing. It is notable for its separate sitting room; bedroom with dramatic tray ceiling embellished with a hand-painted mural; and lavish bath, the Jacuzzi tub, glassed-front double shower, and dual vanities. There are two walk-in closets, a fireplace open to the sitting room and bedroom, and access to an expansive private terrace.

Recreation, Entertainment and Joie de Vivre

Above all, this magnificent estate is a celebration of life. Its interior and exterior treasures are created to maximize the enjoyment of friends and family. Examples include the fun and educational golf swing studio, the lower level’s fully equipped gym, the “English pub” with tavern-style bar and kitchen, a theatre, a billiard and ping-pong area, and even a removable parquet dance floor. There is a guest suite with its own kitchen and private entrance.

The lower level, in addition to providing access to upper and lower level garages, opens to a brick-arched veranda, two-level terrace, pool, spa and impressive rock waterfalls.

So Far Away, While So Near

This marvelous Billingsgate Lane manor offers everything one could imagine necessary for a first-class, self-sustained lifestyle far from the madding crowd. Yet, it is convenient to myriad dining, shopping, services, cultural and recreational opportunities, minutes from The Country Club at Wakefield Plantation, and convenient to RDU.
