About

Hypertwin Manor at 122 Pinecrest Road is where The Hypertwins live. Harena inherited the house from her dad when he died in 1999.

The manor grounds include #120, a half-lot on the townward side (towards Dogwood and Chapel Hill Rd.) which was split in order to prevent development and leave a buffer between #122 and the next house on that side. The house was built in 1939 by Harena's granddad, F.G. Hall.

We are very lucky to be able to live in this lovely house, but we sometimes feel a bit out of place in the neighborhood, which has slowly transitioned from being a place for Duke professors and their families to being more of a sought-after high-end area where people with nice jobs in RTP or wherever live for 3-7 years until they get a promotion and move somewhere else. (We both grew up on the other side of Highway 751 a.k.a. Academy Road — Harena at 2715 Montgomery and Woozle at 2719 McDowell.)

It is also too small.

Notes

  • Family wraps home in greenhouse to warm up Stockholm weather
    • out of our price range for now (€80k circa 2005), but would provide some clear benefits:
      • more energy-efficient without having to replace the antique windows
      • create semi-outdoors work areas (like a screened-in porch but with better temperature control)
      • maybe allow the attic to be a proper room
      • provide a temperate place for the clementine plants (which we currently have to bring inside for the winter)
      • eliminate the need for gutters (currently in extreme disrepair)

  • Re-View is a company which rebuilds historic windows from scratch -- probably very expensive, but if we ever have the money, maybe we could get them to rebuild the stripped openers in many of our windows.
