This distinctly Yankee style stone & shingle cottage in Tryon, NC, was designed by the Detroit architectural firm of Donaldson and Meier, circa 1931, for Michigan snowbirds. With a premier location in the highly coveted Melrose Circle area and a short walk to village amenities, the charming home retains many of its original quality details including pegged wood & oak floors, built in wood cabinetry with iron hardware, painted paneling and box beams. A recently completed refresh features Kitchenaid appliances & leathered granite counter tops in the sunny kitchen. There is a cozy bedroom and bath on the main level, and upstairs a master w/fireplace, dressing room/bath, another bedroom, and another full bath, all retaining vintage fixtures & design. The front entry leads through the family room and Dutch door to a raised stone patio overlooking a unique stone folly and a mature southern garden containing magnolias, dogwoods, gardenias and colorful perennials.
