About 4072 Airport Road

C Louis Meyer Farm is enveloped by privacy in the heart of North Carolina's Midland. The historic, proud residence originally built in 1895 is situated on approximately seventeen acres amid the tall long-leaf pines. The originally constructed residence has been refined over the years to maintain its regal welcoming appeal and function. In the 1930s additions were made to the residence and in 1999 further enhancements were made with careful attention to detail to preserve the home's historic integrity. In 2008 a four bay carriage house was added complimented by more luxury living space including wine cellar and wine tasting room. The estate now includes, numerous living spaces, four kitchens, ten bedrooms, office and sitting rooms, eight luxury baths, three powder rooms, large workout space, three laundry rooms, several patios and decks, swimming pool, large pond, horse stables, two story log cabin, and so much more.


The compound is reached by a long sandy drive winding through the tall pines to savor the idyllic ambiance. The property is ideal for the buyer seeking a corporate or family retreat offering pristine Sandhills scenery, complete privacy, and unlimited opportunities for enjoyment.


The farm was originally purchased by C. Louis Meyer, a concrete magnate from Chicago. He was an avid equestrian and his wife a golf enthusiast, making the farm the perfect vacation destination for the Meyer family. Today this is one of the most unique properties in the country because of its location, history, and amenities. It lies between the famed Pinehurst #6 and private Forest Creek Golf Club, which was founded by the owner of this historic site.


Life at the farm is unsurpassed. Though private it is within easy reach of all things Pinehurst. The residence was planned in such a way that it can be enjoyed by a multitude of guests or by one or a couple. The main house is the original dwelling built in 1895 with wide plank floors and raised panel millwork of pine harvested from the land. The residence has been continually refined through the decades while still maintaining its grand historic qualities and charm. The master suite is a wing all its own featuring a sitting room, office, voluminous bedroom, spa-like bath, large custom walk in closet, office, more than ample laundry room with powder room, and outdoor access to the pool just steps away. There are inviting guest rooms upstairs. With quality appointments at every turn the extraordinary formal dining room, charming breakfast room, and loggia with wet bar, are further enhanced by an unparalleled living space found in the gathering room with soaring ceiling, fireplace, and transom-topped French doors opening onto the pool on one side and a slate patio on the other.


The hideaway guest cottage offers complete luxury and comfort courtesy of four private guest rooms, three beautiful baths, laundry accommodations, full kitchen, and living room, all overlooking the pool and nature.


The four car carriage house, affectionately dubbed the “Garage-Mahal” is the ultimate indulgence. Car storage spaces offer finished floors, ceilings, and walls, are heated and cooled and even have central vacuum system connections. There are three levels of living space with a workout studio featuring wide plank floors and fireplace as well as large laundry room. Leading to the upper level, the open stairwell and lighting offer the ultimate space for displaying art. Upstairs there are spacious great room with fireplace and cathedral ceiling, bedrooms, kitchen, and huge bonus room with exterior entrance to the grounds and pool. Perhaps the most decadent feature of the “Garage-Mahal” is the wine cellar with cork floors, two large temperature controlled wine storage rooms encased in glass. At the center of this Tuscan paradise is the massive yet intimate wine tasting room complimented by its own kitchen.


Come explore and experience C. Louis Meyer Farm. Truly Pinehurst's finest.
