.One of the prettiest and most pristine historic homes in North Carolina is just a hop skip and jump away from me in Hillsborough and from there just a short trip to Chapel Hill- the University of North Carolina.
1815, Ayr Mount
The beautiful Ayr Mount is the home of native North Carolinian Richard Jenrette. Jenrette is owner of a number of perfectly restored homes - read about them all in the New York Social Diary here
Come visit Ayr Mount, and I'll meet you there!
I recommend both of Jenrette's books Adventures with Old Houses and More Adventures with Old Houses.
