Sweet, Sweet Serenity

Contemporary Home on 23 Acres near Tryon, NC



This contemporary ranch set amid 23.53 acres of mature hardwoods features an open floor plan which flows from room to room with all the elements of stone, wood and glass that envelope the senses in an oasis of wooded privacy.   The guest house and swimming pool give this property a feel of private vacation living all year round.  

The Residence | Built in 1983, the house features timeless contemporary styling.  The main house offers one level living designed with a spectacular stone wall as the central focal point which serves to define the living space. The entry hall, living and dining area flow around the stone wall.  Kitchen, family room, master suite, guest bed and full bath complete the interior main house floor plan.   The living space is extended to the outdoors through a screen porch off the living room.  An expanded deck overlooks the pool and continues around the house to gather outside the family room.

Living Room | Windows, windows and glass doors, oh my!! A wall of windows and glass doors bring in lots of natural light to this living space.  Complimented by a beamed cathedral ceiling and parquet floors, this grand room is also flanked by a spectacular fireplace encased in stone from the hearth to the ceiling.
Wet Bar | No entertaining is complete without a wet bar!  Built in the wall of the entry hall, this wet bar adjoins the living room to make entertaining an ease.
Porch | Adding to the sweet serenity of this property is the screened porch.  Located off the living area, this space brings in the great outdoors while keeping you under roof.
Dining | The brilliant stone wall which serves to divide this contemporary living space, compliments the dining room with a set-in fireplace and built-in shelving unit.  An extension of the living area, the dining room benefits from the natural light provided by sharing the wall of windows and glass doors.  Parquet floors continue throughout this space to maintain the floor plan’s continuity.
Kitchen | Kitchen has lots of cabinet, counter and storage space with a large kitchen island.   Walk-in pantry and built-in appliances further enhance this kitchen. A laundry room sits off the kitchen followed by a  long hallway which leads to the garage, basement and on around to the master suite.
Master Suite | The master suite is down the hall to the right of the family room.  This private retreat offers a separate dressing area and tremendously large walk-in closet.  The bedroom opens onto the deck adjoining the family room.
Master Bath | As part of the master suite, the large master bath includes vanity with lots of storage, linen closet, garden tub and separate shower.  Plenty of room to pamper your body and soul!
2nd Bedroom | A second bedroom on the main level sits off the foyer.  A full bath adjoins the bedroom.  Bedrooms are located at separate ends of the residence offering privacy to all.
Family Room | Located beyond the dining room and adjoining the kitchen, this space offers a wall of glass and two skylights which showers in natural light.  Use as a dinette, sitting room, home office or all three. 
Decks & Views | The family room opens onto the back deck for more outdoor living space. Enjoy the winter mountain views!
Swimming Pool | Gather the family or friends around the pool for a dip or to grill a kabob!  Large deck area around pool for lounging, swimming, or entertaining.
Guest House | This guest house features one bedroom, a full bath and living area with kitchenette.  Great for guests or visiting family.
The Location | Situated in Polk County, NC with easy access to Hwy I-26 and the towns of Tryon and Columbus, NC and Landrum, SC.  Easy driving distance to Hendersonville and Asheville, NC with close proximity to the Asheville Regional Airport or the Greenville/Spartanburg Airport.   Harmoniously preserved conformity of exterior design and materials as well as location with respect to topography of the land enhances the natural beauty of the property.  Large tract allows privacy and much of the natural landscaping has been maintained – lots of mature hardwood trees!  Private feel yet close to shopping, dining, cultural, equestrian and outdoor venues.
