LISCOMBE LODGE, built in 1927 is one of the most charming and architecturally detailed cottages in the Village of Pinehurst, beautifully situated off majestic Linden Road just a block from the Carolina Hotel and an easy stroll to the Village shops and restaurants. The charm of the cottage is enhanced by an engaging history, once the winter home of Gen. and Mrs. George Marshall, Roosevelt's Chief of Staff during WW II and host to Harry Truman during those years. The superior quality architecture includes an overhang with carved buttresses, arched front entry and high windows with transoms that flood the interior with light and open views of the .85 acre manicured gardens and natural setting. The foyer opens to a stunning living room with a ribbed barrel-vaulted ceiling of unusual height for a cottage, a spacious dining parlor lined with book shelves and window seats, original heart pine floors and tastefully updated gourmet kitchen that compliments the integrity of the cottage style home. The original master bedroom now serves as a spacious family room and opens to a cozy den with fireplace and a wonderful reading nook. The oversized master suite addition with seating area has a bank of floor to ceiling shuttered windows overlooking the grounds, large walk-thru closet, bath w/ dressing table and separate tub and shower. Well placed skylights create sunlit rooms in the main house two guest suites, each with full baths. The guest cottage w/ additional 519 sqft of heated space offers a 4th bedroom with kitchenette & full bath for ultimate guest privacy. The kitchen breakfast room w/ window seat & dutch door opens to the back courtyard & covered porches. From the curve of the front door roof line to the perfect dimension of the covered front porch, to the warmth of the original hardwoods, the banks of windows in the living and dining rooms to the allure of the remarkable landscaping, LISCOMBE LODGE is the best in every detail of what Old Town Pinehurst has to offer.
