Originally constructed in 1968, this home was one of the first homes in the highly anticipated Red Fox Country Club. Red Fox hosted many celebrities and dignitaries throughout its storied history. Many reclaimed materials were used during construction, that give this home so much of its character… many beams and woodwork throughout from the original Carter Brown cabins at the Pine Crest in Tryon. The house was beautifully sited on 5.26 acres overlooking rolling greenspaces, offering privacy and resplendent, mature landscaping.
Inside, you’ll find that this gracious 4,851 square feet dame was built for entertaining, and embodies casual elegance.

The kitchen offers a large island and Jenn-Air appliances, walk in pantry and two refrigerators (easily converted into separate subzero refrigerator and freezer) Talk about an entertainer’s dream! Rounding out the main floor is a charming study with a woodburning fireplace, sliding glass doors to a private terrace, and reclaimed wood paneling and shelves from an early 1900s cabin.
