Home Details

Welcome to “Windover” of Tryon, the awe-inspiring writer’s retreat for NY Times Best Selling Author, Mary Alice Monroe. Originally constructed in 1933, using the finest quality materials and impeccable eye for detail. Beautifully appointed on 4.78 acres with frontage along the Pacolet River and vista views of Melrose and Warrior Mountains. Just outside the vibrant town of Tryon and just off the incredibly scenic Highway 176 to Saluda, Windover’s gates welcome each returning guest and stewards. There have only been five to date. The newly reconditioned drive winds up the knoll to a masterpiece from a bygone era. The main residence was constructed in English Revival style architecture using a hard stucco and stone exterior and Ludiwici tile roof. A stroll past the revitalized courtyard and through the Moroccan door, one can not help but appreciate the level of craftsmanship that the home exudes. The oak paneling in the living room was imported from a 19th century english estate and assembled using craftsman who worked on the construction of the Biltmore House. The mantle above the warm stone fireplace, was painstakingly hand carved by another Biltmore craftsman, now famously dubbed, the Tryon Toymaker. the living room opens to glass sunroom with beautiful exposures of the mountain vistas. A guest bedroom with en suite bath adjoins the living room to the south. The nicely equipped, bright kitchen is open to a breakfast room, which Mary Alice believes would make a fabulous bar area with club chairs for entertaining and relaxing. The adjoining dining room shows off more wood paneling and handcrafted built ins. The kitchen/breakfast area opens to a covered flagstone terrace adorned with a stone fireplace for enjoying those cool Carolina summer evenings. Outdoor entertaining space extends throughout backside of the home with beautiful views of the Pacolet River and mountains. Back across the foyer into the west wing, lies a remarkable den/study with fireplace and private bath. Beyond lies the grand master suite with an 18 foot ceiling, fireplace and original wrought iron french doors that lead back out to the back terrace… perfect for a pergola or hot tub. The versatile lower level offers a large private office or guest bedroom, additional bed room suite and a nice workshop. The pool and pool terrace between main house and guest suite has undergone a total overhaul. Both pool and terrace have been resurfaced. Pool has been fitted with a state of the art salt water filtration system. A changing room and bathroom lead off the back side of the pool terrace, with a rare architectural 10 foot fencing, custom trellis and custom gates underway by local artisan. The carriage house was previously used as an art studio and could be transformed into a fabulous guest house. New HVAC system is already in place. Could also be easily used as a garage. An adjacent studio apartment with full bathroom and wood beams currently provides refuge for guests. Harmon Field is a stone’s throw away and offers the opportunity to take a stroll along the river on paved walking paths, take in a horse show or let the dogs play in the dog park. Nearby Roger’s Park Amphitheater is the place to be on Friday evenings for open air concerts! Ideally located near many small, electric towns and within 45 minutes to Greenville and Asheville. Only 25 minutes up Highway 176 to downtown Hendersonville to Fresh Market, Publix and the wonderful shops and restaurants. Home is in ship shape and has undergone extensive mechanical and infrastructural renovations… ready for its new steward to write its next chapter. Current steward plans to write several about it soon. Windover is the epitome of charm and comfort. A rare retreat built when quality mattered. Nestled in the vibrant foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
