Friendly Hills is a 1924 English Tudor style home with 17 manicured acres enveloped by the foothills of the blue Ridge mountains. This 4,500 SF estate home was once owned by renowned author, Margaret Culkin Banning. The log cabin that helped inspire her writings is still a part of this beautifully unique property. The moment you enter the foyer, this home will draw you into its one of a kind interior. The historic flavor of the wood floors, beamed 20′ ceilings and rock fireplace with mantle made by the famous “Tryon Toymakers” exudes old world style.

The house features amazing rockwork inside and out, from walkways to columns. Amenities include a saltwater pool, 3BR/2BA guest house and a large 2 level shop that could be converted to another guest quarters. This private, knoll top estate property is situated only 1.5 miles from downtown Tryon.

The historic Friendly Hills is under protective covenants held by Preservation North Carolina. Please contact Dawn Williams at or 919-832-3652 x221 to request a copy of these covenants.
