Tryon, NC 28782
Think the River House – SOLD
Long known as The River House, this circa 1900 stunner perched well above the Pacolet River was once home to famed Tryon pioneer Carter Brown and has been an area showpiece for well over a century. The distinguished home has remained in the same family since conveyed from Brown in the 1960s and much of the detail is original. The 4/5 bedroom home is handsome, timeless, and spacious. The living, dining, and keeping rooms are simply delightful, and outstanding details can be found throughout the home, including 10’ ceilings, custom millwork, heart pine flooring, and 6 wood-burning fireplaces. The peaceful riverside setting also includes a quaint guest house, rustic barn, and pasture area. This truly remarkable property is a must-see for anyone who appreciates the character and charm of historic homes. Well-suited for a seasonal second home or family retreat and those who understand and appreciate the senescent nature of older homes. Offered “as is”.

*Portions of the property along the river are in a floodplain. Main home and surroundings well above the floodplain.
*There is a recorded Conservation Easement on the property to preserve its integrity.
