About 700 Windless Trail

Frank Lloyd Wright once said ''If you invest in Beauty, it will remain with you all the days of your life'' This home could be possibly be the last home you'll ever need. Located just 13 miles to downtown Raleigh, this contemporary home is located on a private 10 acre lot graced by a pond, meadow, and woods with a meandering creek. Designed by artist Robert Irwin, and constructed by Steel Dynamics, this one level home is built to withstand time. Originally commissioned for an orthopedic surgeon, universal design principles are employed to provide easy ''aging in place'': extra wide doorways, concrete floors, all bedrooms on main floor. Property is perfect for dreamers and creative spirits: a private sanctuary, plenty of room for horses, gardens, additional buildings/barns etc. (there's even 4 steel containers behind the privet hedge for more storage and workshop space!) A large craft room/studio could be converted to an in-law or nanny suite! Listed as a significant modernist house on NCModernist.org
