Vista at the Riverbank

Haute Couture Cottage in Tryon NC


This high-fashioned Arts and Crafts cottage is located in Vista at the Riverbank, a gated community near the White Oak Golf and Equestrian Community in Tryon, NC.  The exterior is fashioned with stone and fiber cement board with special attention to the trim detail.  Stone columns adorn the covered front porch along with a solid wood front door and accent shutters and garage door.  Architectural details throughout the house add glamour to the rustic charm of the house. 

The Residence | Built in 2008, this home extols many fine amenities including hickory flooring, imported tile, beamed ceilings, exquisite light fixtures and 8-foot solid doors.  The fireplace is adorned with small river pebble/stone mantel surround and the powder room features a 450-pound carved travertine stone pedestal sink.  Top of the line appliances are accented by granite countertops and fine cabinetry in the kitchen.  Exterior landscaping design is contoured to the incline of the driveway leading to the front of the house which gives this home well-dressed curb appeal.
The Foyer | The entrance opens into a foyer that is delineated from the dining/living area by a ceiling beam and detail trimmed wood column from floor to ceiling.  The house has an open floor plan for easy one-level living.
Living Room | The living room flows from the foyer and has an   exquisite focal point surrounding the fireplace. Posh hardwood floors and a warm color scheme invite a relaxed atmosphere to a luxurious environment.
Kitchen | Stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and tiled backsplash accent the custom cabinetry in the kitchen. Notice all the attention to the fine details of the kitchen design!
Breakfast Area | More detail in design!  The breakfast bar with patterned tile designs adds style to the eat-in kitchen area.
Dining | The dining room completes the great room configuration and is complimented by an ornate chandelier.  Great space for intimate dinner parties.
Family Room | Just beyond the kitchen is an adjoining family room showcasing a vaulted ceiling and rustic wood beams. Picture windows featuring a center arch bring much light into the space.  Mirrors in stained wood frames accent the back wall and are highlighted with gallery lighting.  Who says rustic can’t have high style?
Master Bedroom | Sitting off the great room opposite the kitchen, the master bedroom completes the ease of one-level living in this exquisite cottage.  A tray ceiling compliments the room design along with hardwood floors and lots of windows.  Plenty of room to add your own accessories to complete the master retreat.
Master Bath | Large master bath features double vanities, garden tub, separate tiled shower, water closet and walk-in clothes closet.  Design accents include an arched window over the tub, glass block wall separating the tub from the shower and an ornate chandelier hangs from the vaulted ceiling.
Guest Bedrooms | A hallway leads from the great room to two bedrooms, a full bath, laundry room, attic access and inside entrance to the two-car garage.  The bedrooms flank the hall bathroom on both sides.  Great for family or perfect private guest rooms. With access from the hallway, a staircase leads to a “roughed-in” attic space.  Ready to complete as a bedroom, studio, study or hobby room with a separate bathroom.
Half Bath | Bathroom has a vanity area with lots of storage.  A door separates the vanity area from the toilet and the combined tub/shower unit.
Laundry Room | This is the laundry room?  Utility sink features tiled backsplash with plenty of room to attend to all your special laundry needs on the granite countertop.  Plenty of storage in the under sink cabinet. 
Back Yard | A deck sits off the back of the house and is perfect for entertaining.  This community was planned on 75 wooded acres with the existing homes sited to appreciate the surrounding natural setting.
The Location | Vista at the Riverbank is a gated community located in the Green Creek Community of Polk County, NC and is only minutes from the proposed Green Creek Equestrian Park.  Close proximity to U.S. Highway 74 allows easy access to Rutherfordton and only a 1 ½ hour drive to Charlotte, NC.   U.S. Highway 74 also connects with I-26 for easy commute to the Hendersonville/Asheville area.  Just 20 minutes from Landrum, SC and the Foothills Equestrian Nature Center (FENCE).
