Blue Ribbon House

Rutherfordton, NC 28139

The Blue Ribbon House is the perfect destination for equestrians and spectators alike, offering 3,000 sf of living space with plenty of rooms to spread out. The historic 1890's property adopted its new moniker as a result of being the temporary home to several past "winners", one even taking home a Grand Prix from Tryon International Equestrian Center. The gorgeous restored farmhouse with breath taking long range mountain views and awe inspiring sunsets is sited on 7+ acres of rolling hills. The original farmhouse and outbuilding add to the charm of this property, soon to be your favorite home away from home. Being located only 6 miles (10 minutes door to door) from TIEC makes it perfect for equestrians, vendors and spectators. The house offers 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths with the ability to accommodate multiple families and maintain privacy. There are two master bedroom suites on the main level each with private baths and all are outfitted with new high quality linens. The spacious bright sun-room, furnished as the family room, opens to the gourmet kitchen and is the perfect spot for hanging out with friends and family. Four fireplaces, one with a wood stove, keep you cozy on those cool nights. A piano is an added bonus for impromptu sing-a-longs, while multiple outdoors spaces blurs the line between inside and out. Enjoy a game of horse shoes, take in the gorgeous view or simply enjoy a cup of coffee from the porch- all are possibilities at the Blue Ribbon House. Hiking, golf, kayaking, antiquing and winery tours are all within a few minutes drive of the property. Lake Lure and Lake Lanier are also close by for those lazy Sunday afternoon drives. Come see what all our area has to offer and while here, let the Blue Ribbon House be your home base. Centrally located between three major airports and minutes from 74-Bypass which connects to I-26 and I-85, getting here is a breeze.
