Such a nice house! And Tryon is a quaint town full of friendly people. We loved our visit there. And it’s close to the Tryon International Equestrian Center. This home was built in 1915. It is located on .59 acres in Tryon, North Carolina. The yard is gorgeous! So are the ceilings! This was home to Tryon artist, Jean Stansbury Holden. It is said she helped construct the ceilings in the dining room and living room. This home is situated within walking distance to downtown Tryon. Three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 2,031 square feet. $275,000

From the Zillow listing:


This BEAUTIFUL TRYON COTTAGE is the former home of Tryon Artist Jean Stansbury Holden, who is said to have helped construct the elaborate ceilings in the combined Living and Dining Room.  The 3 bedroom / 3 bathroom flexible floor plan can be lived in as a large home, or a smaller home with an apartment in the rear with it’s own entrance and driveway. The tall ceilings offer a feeling of space, in the light filled rooms offering mountain views from the front of the home.   The charming European style kitchen and breakfast area, sit next to a den that has most recently been used as an Art Studio. The mature landscaping is a Gardner’s Dream, on this corner lot within walking distance to Downtown Tryon…   Call today to learn more about this Special Property.
