Why We ❤️ Love It

1. Overlooks Hole #5 at Cleghorn Golf & Sports Club at Tryon Resort

Cleghorn Golf & Sports Club at Tryon Resort is one of the HOTTEST golf courses & sports clubs in the area right now. There has been quite the Buzz in the air since the Tryon Equestrian Partners purchased the course & amenities in 2016 and immediately got to work on improvements to the course, guest amenities, and public spaces. This home sits on the 5th Hole overlooking the tee boxes and has a wonderful view looking down the 5th fairway. You can walk out your 8-foot tall french doors onto the awesome stamped concrete patio, grab a seat and heckle golfers while you sip on a cold beverage!

2. Basement Perfect for Guest Suite

There are plenty of reasons why people love basements ... storage, recreation rooms, additional living space that can be shut off from the rest of the home when not in use, etc.  However, this home's basement is set up perfectly for use as a stand-alone guest suite/mother-in-law's quarters. It has its own private concrete driveway and entrance which makes it perfect for coming and going without having to enter/exit through the main level of the home and with a paved driveway you don't have to walk around the front and side yards each time your guests come and go. The ceilings and walls are completely finished and there is a full bath rough plumbed if you want to add a 4th full bath to the home.  It's currently an open space ready for you to make it your own!

3. Located on Private, Dead-End Street

You're on a dead-end culdesac street that's gated and only 6 homes on the entire road currently so you'll have plenty of privacy and a sense of lock-and-leave security if you're using this as a secondary home or if you travel for work where you'll be gone for extended periods of time.

4. The Finishes are 'Not-so-Par for the Course'

There are a lot of homes that you'll see or read about that claim to have been 'custom-built' and feature 'high-end finishes & materials' but leave you yearning for more when you see them in person.  This home isn't one of those in our opinion.  From the real natural stone used on the exterior siding and entry porch, the custom stamped and stained concrete patio off the rear and the Hardie Plank siding & shakes to the real hardwood floors throughout the majority of the home and little touches like the body spray jets in the walk-in tile shower in the master bedroom ... this home is sure to impress!  There are also high-quality windows and doors, custom built-in cabinets flanking the cultured stone fireplace in the great room, a custom island in the kitchen, along with trey ceiling in the master bedroom and a brick retaining wall along the lower basement driveway. Take a look at the pictures below and you'll see why we are calling this home - 'Not-so-Par for the Course.'

What you need to know

This Donald Gardner designed floorplan was custom-built on the 5th tee of Cleghorn Golf & Sports Club @ Tryon Resort! You'll find golf course views from every room along the entire rear of the home and plenty of areas, both inside and out, to take advantage of these views.

Main Level

Real hardwood floors run throughout the main level (and most of the 2nd) with tile in the baths. Granite countertops adorn the kitchen & baths with an incredible master suite on the main offering a walk-in shower with body sprays, dual vanities, soaker tub, dual walk-in closets, and a trey ceiling. The Kitchen features a large L-shaped island with breakfast bar which is the perfect spot for breakfast or a quick lunch and a great place to sit and chat with the cook while dinner is prepped .  The custom island opens to the Great Room with grand Cathedral ceiling, a stone fireplace with gas logs, built-in cabinets for storage and display flank each side. 

Off the kitchen and to the front of the home is the formal dining room with its awesome arched window overlooking the perfectly manicured front lawn. Down the back hall is the home office or potential for a 4th bedroom if needed, the 2nd full bathroom on the main level which doubles as the guest bath for visitors and the laundry room which serves as a great mudroom offering storage and a place to drop shoes and keys as you enter from the garage! 

Upper Level

From the front entry foyer, you'll notice a beautiful wood staircase leading you upstairs to a landing covered in hardwood overlooking the great room and a view out to the golf course. There are 2 additional bedrooms and a full 3rd bathroom on this level plus the enormous bonus room over the garage. This bonus room is the perfect spot for a media room, a 5th bedroom should you ever need it, a recreation room, exercise area or even a flexible use space for some combo of all these options.


Large finished Basement with inside & outside entrances and a 2nd concrete driveway. Pre-plumbed for a full bathroom this could be the ideal space for an in-laws quarters, guest bedrooms, recreation room, family room and bar, home gym or media room. The floors are polished concrete for easy maintenance but could have something softer added if desired.  It's currently a wide open space with finished ceilings and walls and ready for you to make it fit your own needs as you see fit. 


Around the exterior, you'll find the home covered in a beautiful Natural Stone, with accents of Hardie plank & shakes plus brick around the foundation. The concrete front walk leads you to a fantastic entry porch in natural stone and craftsman style wooden front door. One of the favorite spots on the exterior of this home is the custom stamped & stained patio just off the great room. There's room for lounging furniture as well as a full-size table and chairs and it's the perfect place to entertain as the traffic flows naturally right out of the great room and kitchen areas.
