Beautiful! “Carrollwood”, Circa 1932. Three acres in North Carolina. $675,000

November 18, 2023

This sure is a beautiful home! Like a time capsule in some regards. Carrollwood was built in 1932. It is located on 3.07 acres in Tryon, North Carolina. The home features a covered front porch, hardwood floors, crown moulding, built-ins, wide baseboards, french doors, arched windows and a butler’s pantry. This price seems very reasonable! Two bedrooms, three bathrooms and 4,027 square feet. The bedroom/bathroom ratio seems off. I’m guessing the nursery is a bedroom and sometimes in these older homes the bedrooms may not have closets. If that is the case, it cannot be listed as a bedroom. $675,000

From the Zillow listing:


Carrollwood is a truly remarkable circa 1930’s home located in the desirable Gillette Woods neighborhood of Tryon. Substantial yet not overstated, the 3BR/2.5BA home is loaded with elegant period details including custom crown moldings, doors and other millwork, hard wood floors, and 4 wood burning fireplaces. Large master bedroom features a sitting area, fireplace, nursery and walk-out screened porch. The possibility of returning 2 additional bedrooms from the original living quarters on the third floor also exists. Outside the home, lovely, terraced landscapes include stone walls, patios and walkaways, as well a variety of native plantings; there’s even a small lily pond. Separate 1BR/1BA guest house. Large 3-acre parcel affords privacy and space for outdoor activities. This timeless beauty is very much original. Wonderful opportunity for anyone experienced in renovating older homes, as significant repair and updating will be required. Start with the video tour, but a true must see!
