Private Family Estate Land Near Tryon
Parcel #/ID: P36-175, P36-174, P36-67
Just behind the Tryon Country Club, two miles back a tree-lined road from the center of Tryon, lies 103 +/- acres of exceptional opportunity for homestead, family compound, development and recreational use. This tract of land is rumored to be home to former moonshiners, was home to several families, and has remains of a stone cistern to supply Tyron with water. Now it hosts multiple bold streams and a small pond that brings water to abundant deer and turkey. Most of the property is covered in hardwood timber, but recently logged areas provide long-range views, wildlife habitat and several trails that allow for easy exploration of the property by horse, ATV, or hiking. Springs once fed the six original home sites, outbuildings and a greenhouse in the valley. These sites show the current development potential and some include long range mountain views. Make this your new private estate with room for multiple homes, nature enjoyment and hunting, and the convenience of being just minutes from town.
60 +/- Acres woodlands
40 +/- Acres cleared timber
1.5 +/- Acres Homes, open area and pond site

Western North Carolina continues to see population growth and regularly receives accolades as one of the best places to live, retire, or vacation. This creates growing need for homes in all price ranges.
Starting with paved state road access, the property entrance has favorable topography that lends itself well to development options, green building, sustainable and eco-developments, or traditional ventures are all possible. Further up in elevation, building sites have expansive long range views.
This property has miles of trails and interior roads for hiking, ATVs, horseback riding, and exploring. Turn over rocks in the streams looking for salamanders or stock the pond with your favorite small fish. Clearings have created a variety of vegetation that wildlife love using for habitat and deer, turkey, and other upland small game enjoy the land as well.
Just a short drive to the Tryon International Equestrian Center, this parcel has the potential for mountain equestrian use. While truly flat areas are limited, there are many rolling areas of the property that could be turned into pasture with trails throughout the property for your horses to enjoy.
Starting with the large stone cistern on the ridge that once supplied water to Tryon, this property has many stories to tell. In the 1970's the Madar's started buying parcels in the area including those from the family of an old moonshiner. Parts of his still complete with bullet holes remain as a tin shed on the property. In that day, Horseshoe Curve once continued up what is now Madar Trail, but a lightning strike in the 1980's burned one of the homes to the ground and the fire department was unable to locate it. After that Madar Trl became the new unofficial and official name for the road. Several of the other old homes above the pond were vacation cabins for the Pace family until they became uninhabitable. The pond, terrace walls and other features throughout the property were built over many years in the 80's and 90's
