Haymount’s Fair Oaks Manor has new offer by prospective buyer

The historic, antebellum mansion known as Fair Oaks in Haymount has a new prospective buyer.

Suzanne Pennink, the real estate agent for the family wanting to sell the 158-year-old home at 1507 Morganton Road, said Thursday that someone put in an offer this week to buy the home, after the Fayetteville City Council rejected a proposal to convert it into a 90-student private school.

Pennink said the prospective buyer, whom she could not publicly identify, wanted to wait until the council acted Tuesday on the school proposal before submitting the offer.
