TRYON, N.C., Oct. 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Target Auction Company is offering at auction two one-of-a-kind mountain homes nestled among the rolling foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Tryon and Mill Spring, North Carolina. Online bidding begins Monday, October 21, and ends Tuesday, October 29.
"It's not often that such a perfect combination of style, magnificent views, and low reserves come together in a sale like this," said Dewey Jacobs, President of Target Auction Company. "Each home is spectacular in its own way, and whoever places a winning bid will get an incredible deal."
The larger of the two homes is "Friendly Hills" at 80 Country Club Road in Tryon. A 1924 English Tudor surrounded by 17+ manicured acres, Friendly Hills is registered with the NC State Historic Preservation Office and was once owned by best-selling novelist Margaret Culkin Banning. A log cabin on the property once served as inspiration for some of the famous author's writings.
Interior features include wood floors, beamed 20-foot ceilings and a fireplace mantle made by the famous Tryon Toy Makers. Other amenities include a 3BR/2BA guest house, a salt-water pool, and rock walkways and columns.
Originally listed at $2.475 million and will be selling to the highest bidder at or above only $975,000.
Recently listed at $1.9 million, this property will sell at or above a published minimum bid of only $475,000.
Auction representatives will be available for tours of both properties on October 19, 20, 26 and 27 from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Appointments are recommended and may be made by calling 800-476-3939.
"Not only are these homes fabulous, their Tryon locale is a huge plus," said Jacobs. "The town is loaded with charm and history, and the area is easily accessible to Tryon International Equestrian Center, Biltmore Estate, Lake Lure, and more. 'Location, location, location,' truly applies here."
