4584 US 421 Highway, Lillington, NC 27546
Residents of the peaceful town of Lillington, North Carolina enjoy abundant natural resources and an ideal, slower pace of life that many buyers seek in today’s Piedmont-area real estate market. Thriving Harnett County, in fact, is one of the top five fastest-growing counties in the state.
Lillington: Location is Everything
The bucolic rural setting of Lillington is hard to beat, but the town’s prime location – midway between Raleigh and Fayetteville and just a 40-minute drive to Research Triangle Park (RTP) or Fort Bragg – is even more enticing for some house hunters who desire to live as close as possible to urban areas for work and entertainment. Campbell University is conveniently situated within a 10-minute drive of downtown, and most of the area’s largest local industries – manufacturing, science and technology, agriculture and healthcare – are experiencing strong and steady growth. Overall the economic outlook for the area is very positive.
Cape Fear River and Raven Rock State Park
Raven Rock State Park, one of North Carolina’s most remarkable park resources, attracts hikers, bikers, fishermen, campers and kayakers with multiple trails and over twenty campsites on and around the picturesque Cape Fear River and massive Raven Rock landmark. Over 4,800 pristine acres provide a spectacular snapshot of the geology and topography of the region: dense hardwood forest; streams filled with catfish, bass, and sunfish; fields of colorful springtime wildflowers; and treetops where wood ducks, hawks, owls and woodpeckers nest and thrive.
The magnificent estate home at 4584 US 421 Highway is an exceptional residence for those seeking to enjoy country living at its fullest. 5,156 square feet of custom-built living space – two master bedrooms (one with fireplace), home theatre, grand foyer and sunroom, all with 10-foot coffered ceilings – complement an open floor plan featuring quality craftsmanship throughout.
The attention to detail in this spacious home’s parlor, formal dining room, family room and office/study area is superb, as is the quality of the high-end (Jenn Aire) appliances, custom cabinets and walk-in pantry of the outstanding chef’s kitchen. Four bedrooms – two of these master – are large and filled with natural light, and a game room provides plenty of room for pool table, wet bar and more.
The outside of this stunning home is no less impressive, with a wide and welcoming covered front porch, beautifully landscaped yard and circular driveway, back porch overlooking a stocked private pond, and prime fenced pasture with riding trails.
