Treyburn home


Unlike Virginia, North Carolina farms were typically smaller in pre-Civil War days but a few plantations did exist. The parcel for Treyburn, which means Three Rivers, was assembled from three of these plantations by a development group that included Terry Sanford, Jr. the son of Governor Terry Sanford, who also was President of Duke and a Democratic candidate for United States President.

The initial vision for Treyburn in the late 80’s was very ambitious. Besides world class luxury residences and a Tom Fazio designed championship golf course, part of the large parcel was intended to become an industrial development that would complement RTP with “clean” manufacturing in the high tech and biotech industries. The club and the residential were immediate successes. The industrial development has come more slowly but has steadily grown.

Treyburn is gorgeous. The topography in the north end of the county becomes a little more rolling. Treyburn also borders Little River Lake for some stunning views. There is a price for all this beauty in terms of convenience, however. A commute into Duke could take 30 minutes or more, stop and go, depending on the time of day. Although it is worth noting that many moving here from more congested metropolises laugh at the suggestion that this defines inconvenient. There is definitely more of a feel that this beautiful community is away from all the hustle and bustle of the city but with a lively social scene centered on the club. Traditional styling dominates in Treyburn with a few contemporaries.
