Dreamer’s Roost is a 42 acre estate that was purchased by its current owner in 1984 from the Cox family who had owned the land for 50 years and operated a cotton farm. The current owners began construction of their beautiful home in 1999
and moved into it in 2001.

Dreamer’s Roost is a magnificent, unique 12,000 square foot home in North Forsyth County. With more than 20 rooms, the owners created an elegant yet inviting and livable home. The home reveals large, open spaces and features an enclosed sunroom with gas grill (no bugs to fight while grilling!), an atrium filled with orchids and a variety of more than two dozen remarkable animals from their various travels and hunts from around the world.

The owner of this estate became a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) in 2003 and wants to continue supporting the children of Forsyth County by opening her wonderful home for this benefit to CASA.

Designers from around the Forsyth County community will decorate each room of this home with exquisite holiday decor for viewing during the above listed dates. A cafe’ and gift shop will also be open to the public during these dates at the same location.
