    149 Perfect Moment Drive, Durham, NC 27713


    It is one of the finest homes in Durham’s prestigious Hills of Rosemont. This stunning
    Mediterranean-style residence provides its owner utmost privacy and serenity as it sits
    on over 4.5 acres embraced by towering trees. A lengthy brick driveway flanked by
    impeccably manicured landscaping leads to a roundabout featuring an impressive
    fountain, a porte cochère, and a portico with Tuscan columns.

    An Introduction Like No Other

    Custom wood-framed glass doors complemented with sidelights and wrought iron
    filigree open to a sanctuary of spaciousness and light, where every space offers myriad
    dramatic architectural and design elements. The finest materials and workmanship are
    evident throughout the home and include the use of exceptional stone and wood,
    breathtaking ceilings, and exquisite detailing.

    The spectacular foyer, with its multi-tray ceiling towering overhead and its polished
    marble floor underfoot, is open to the formal dining room, an office, and a dazzling living
    room beyond stylized columns. The foyer also hosts a grand, curving Riverwood
    staircase, awash in light from several clerestory windows and a remarkable stained
    glass dome. It culminates in a striking gallery-style overlook offering a mezzanine-like
    view to the foyer and living room below.

    An Ambiance of Spaciousness and Light

    The living room, with its soaring four-place tray ceiling, glows from an abundance of
    natural light, bathing the space through a dramatic floor-to-ceiling bank of 15 large multi-
    pane windows. A fireplace is flanked by built-in cabinetry, while, across the room, a
    picture window above a granite-topped bar showcases an adjacent temperature-
    controlled wine room.

    The Heart of the Home

    Nearby, the culinary center is much more than just a place to prepare meals. While the
    kitchen is fit for the discerning home cook or professional chef, with its high-end
    stainless appliances, abundant cabinets, center island and expansive serving counter,
    the generous informal dining area and comfortable keeping room create a welcoming
    hub for family and friends to enjoy the fireplace or gaze at the inspiring rear grounds.
    Easy exterior access creates effortless indoor-outdoor flow.

    Tranquil Retreats for Owner and Guests

    Convenient to all the amenities of the home’s primary living spaces, the owner’s suite is
    tucked away in its own wing just off the foyer. Its cozy fireplace, walk-in closet, luxurious
    bath with steam shower and spa tub, coffee bar, and access to the terrace qualify it as a
    worthy retreat. Additional bedroom suites, on both the upper and lower levels of the
    residence, stand ready to please the most particular family or guests.

    Homage to an Indoor-Outdoor Lifestyle

    While restful spaces abound upstairs, and a versatile upper-level bonus room would
    make an excellent exercise, yoga or art studio, the home’s lower level is perfect for
    recreation and relaxation. There is a professional quality theatre, a large open floor plan
    area with recreation space, kitchen, pantry, dining alcove, lounge with fireplace and
    built-in cabinetry, and a lovely bath with shower. Large multi-pane windows and doors
    provide access to the rear grounds. A very private guestroom with bath and walk-in
    closet ensuite also offers access to the veranda and grounds.

    Year-round Amenities, Endless Possibilities, and Ultimate Convenience

    There is a touch of Tuscany in the veranda, with its stone walls, rustic brick walkway,
    handsome wood ceilings, and stone niche with a built-in grill. Stepping from the veranda
    to the spacious terrace, one is beckoned by the sparkling pool and in-ground spa, and
    enchanted by the neighboring forest, kn
