Dignified 'English Manor' in North Carolina Wants $4.9M

New, 3 comments


Considering this grand estate's preserved interiors, manicured gardens, and stage play decor, it comes as something of a shock to learn that the brokerbabble-described "English Manor" sits lakeside in Asheville, N.C., and not, say, England. Newly listed for $4.979M, the six-bedroom, 7,640-square-foot Statford Towers home was built in 1925 by Scottish architect Samuel Grant Alexander, with all the prestige and austerity a European abode stuck in the American Southeast could possibly muster. Though the kitchen has been recently renovated, most of the home's original detailing—including the solid oak flooring, wainscoting, and gold-scalloped ceiling—have been preserved. Outside, the two-acre property offers a meditation garden, a reflecting pool, and a rather mystical-looking stone gazebo. Have a look, below:
