MOUNT AIRY, N.C. (November 19, 2019) — A historic home nestled on 15.9 sprawling acres has entered the market for $1.925 million. With views of the Blue Ridge Mountains from the west and north, the rolling property encompasses a main residence and a separate guest lodge. Located at 279 Old Rail Road, the estate is marketed exclusively by Michelle Ivester-Rhyne of Premier Sotheby’s International Realty’s Lake Norman office. View listing details here.

Built circa 1834, the main residence is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The original red brick façade is complemented by a 20th century addition on the other side of the home. Crafted with sumptuous wood flooring, the four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath estate is appointed with a grand chef’s kitchen, office, potting room and wine cellar. Several fireplaces set the scene for cozy evenings, while spa-like baths offer a quiet escape. A spacious veranda with outdoor fireplace boasts peaceful views of the wooded surroundings.

The expansive property includes a pool, terrace and separate horse barn. The breathtaking gardens, cultivated by esteemed landscape architect Chip Callaway, showcase lavender, tulips and hydrangeas, as well as magnolia, fruit, nut and evergreen trees. A Victorian flower garden evokes the property’s original 19th century aesthetic.


“This historically significant mountain retreat presents a luxurious lifestyle within a private setting. While several original elements of the property have been lovingly preserved, elegant updates offer everything a modern buyer demands.”
