Historic Stone Hedge on Tour of Homes

Published 9:15 am Monday, April 8, 2013

Two guest houses are included on the tour, each containing a bedroom with a stone fireplace. The pool guest house has built-in ovens on an exterior wall.

The view from the back of the main residence is of Tryon Peak and Miller Mountain. The extensive rock work throughout the interior and exterior of all of the buildings, as well as the rock walls and pillars were built from material cleared from nearby fields.

As you sit on the front terrace, once used for outdoor dining, overlooking the pastoral and Warriar Mountain Views, one can almost hear the countless conversations and celebrations held over the years.
