From the Zillow listing:


This is your opportunity to own a piece of history! Duncraig Manor is an elegant estate in the heart of Southern Pines. This English Tudor Manor house has been lovingly restored to its original grandeur with the addition of modern conveniences, courtesy of an extensive restoration in 2018. Originally commissioned in 1928 by Mrs. Helen A. Lohmann and her mother, Quaker Oats heiress, Mrs. J. H. Andrews. They hired famed local architect, Alfred B. Yeomans, to oversee the project, which was completed in 1930. The sprawling home was later dubbed Duncraig Manor by the 2nd owners, Dr. & Mrs. George Matheson, who had ties to Duncraig Castle in Scotland. The property is comprised of three separate living quarters; the main house, an above-the-garage apartment, and the carriage house. The main house boasts 12 bedrooms, 8 full baths and 3 half baths, a true Chef’s kitchen, leaded glass windows, slate floors, hardwood floors, 8 fireplaces and a variety of flex spaces. The 3 car attached garage has a one bedroom, one bathroom apartment with a kitchenette above it. There is also a separate, one bedroom Carriage House Apartment with all new full bath and kitchen as of 2020. The grounds consist of over 4 acres of lush and thoughtfully planted gardens. A tea house is tucked away by the pool, irises bloom in a small reflecting pool. For outdoor living space, you will find solace on one of the three artisan-restored brick patios. There is also an inviting outdoor pavilion for private parties or outdoor yoga (or both!). There is also a storage shed on the back corner of the property.
