The house at 1624 Morning Mountain Road near Falls Lake in North Raleigh sold for $5.5 million.
It makes the most expensive owner-occupied home sale in Wake County, Cary-based appraiser Stacey Anfindsen says.
Records of the most expensive houses in Triangle previously reached only $3 million.
The record-breaker, a mansion of 12.080-square –foot home, has four bedrooms and nine bathrooms. It was built in 2005 and was remodeled in 2010.
However, the identity of the house owner is not revealed. One thing we know is that the mansion was purchased by a liability company called Morning Mountain Holdings LLC.
The address of the mansion is listed as 2222 Sedwick Road in Durham.
Interestingly enough, it’s the same address as the Eli Global.
It’s an investment firm founded by Durham resident Greg Lindberg.
He has been an active donor in politics and education.
He contributed to Democrats and Republicans for their campaign.
He is promoting education through scholarships to black colleges and universities.
His spokesman refused to provide any information about this. The businessman preferred to keep quiet on this matter.
Jill Rekuc works at Olde Raleigh Real Estate. She mainly works with homes priced above $750.000 for more than a decade.
She said that the mansion is the most expensive owner-occupied home ever sold in Wake County.
Rekuc talked about the challenge with homes priced above $3 million, but also mentioned about the changes in this area.
She supposes that more people are going to reach that level to afford houses like this.
While the most expensive mansion is sold, there are still expensive houses listed and waiting for their owners.
The most expensive in the list is $9.5 million, according to Hodge & Kittrell Sotheby’s International Realty.
Let’s wait and see who is going to be the owner of this mansion.
