        Take relaxation to a new level

        If you appreciate architecture that takes it cues from nature and is built sustainably in a wooded community, you will love this place at Tryon Farm. It takes relaxation to a new level. The module-style home with big picture windows throughout is a great retreat from the city for one, two, or more people. I look forward to going back when it’s warmer and I can open the windows, hear the birds and cicadas, feel the breeze and visit the lake.
