So You Want To Dwell In… Dwell?


We’ve always liked Dwell, especially given the fact it’s the one magazine that kept on coming after our mysterious furniture loss. We never saw the Dwell Home in Raleigh, NC, but we are aware enough of the culturescape to know that it was and is a Big Deal. Which is why we’re gathering up our various salary-hopes and story ideas and heading down to North Carolina to bid.

We just so totally lied about that.

Fine, so we’re not going, but the bidding starts this Thursday. 196 Beech Hill, Pittsboro NC, at $500,000. Here’s what, via archinect, you get for your money:

Set on a hilltop retreat on seven acres adjacent to hundreds of acres protected land, the 2,340 square foot home has two bedrooms, 2.5 baths and includes a 300 square foot bonus room/office/guest bedroom with a separate entrance. Its open floor plan affords panoramic views of the neighboring federal nature preserve and features the ultimate in high-end luxury amenities, including:

Gated driveway with remote control and keypad access, gourmet kitchen, stainless steel Jenn-Air appliances, Kohler Purist fixtures, soaking tub in master bath, Artemide lighting, sustainable bamboo flooring, maple cabinets, Bang & Olufsen audio system throughout house, Home Director smart home system, Lennox Signature Series high-efficiency A/C, rooftop terrace with outdoor fireplace, Neoporte stainless steel entry doors, Loewen windows and sliding glass doors, Trex decking, red cedar siding, wood-burning fireplace in living area, and much more.

Who knows… what with the latest trend of NYC exodus, we could just be convinced.

Yeah, no. Second lie.
