Before and After Horse Farm Renovations

Gorgeous site – needs a new barn

New barn







As a result of this year’s jump in attendance at the Tryon International Equestrian Center, Cielo Real Estate, Tryon’s newest state of the art real estate company, is now offering tutorials and local sourcing for newcomers to Polk County who want to create their own custom horse farms from older, existing area properties – many of which need a good facelift to change from frumpy to fabulous. Below are some good examples of how to renovate an old horse farm.

Before – old & small but has potential!

After – new roof with higher ceilings, more sunlight, open floor plan, extra space.

“Nowadays, the only truly affordable affordable horse farm properties in the Tryon area are in serious need of updates.  The lower price points are the most popular, but doing renovations is more than most buyers want to take on.  Our team is giving buyers step by step guidance, planning, budgeting, and professional local connections to help them turn aging mini farms into awesome horse properties.  This not only helps re-invigorate our community, but is a great investment opportunity for buyers who need to stay in a low price point purchase.  A good mini farm re-hab is a great way for buyers to participate in the growing market as TIEC begins to enhance future values in our area.  Visitors have already started coming here from all over the world.  Polk county covers about 200 square miles, but in fact has a geographically limited “golden rectangle” area near all the equestrian amenities and the equestrian center itself.  Without a doubt we’re going to see demand for nicely renovated properties grow over the next 5 years.  Nobody here has started to focus on small horse farm renovation.  We’re very excited about it.  Imagine making an HGTV show that takes drab outdated houses and makes them new and fabulous. We’re doing that with horse farms.”

About Lynne Perlmutter

Lynne practically grew up in Pisgah Forest, even though she was born and raised in Miami. She finally moved to NC full time with her young family so they could know that indescribable feeling you get sitting on a big rock in the middle of a gently rushing river in the deep woods. Little by little she worked her way back to the woods via Charlotte and towards Tryon thru Bright’s Creek in nearby Mill Spring. With Tryon Equestrian Center coming to town, she knew now was the time to start an office. She is Managing Broker of Cielo Real Estate in LOVELY downtown Tryon. Together with the rest of Cielo's founding brokers and agents, she is introducing a fresh, technologically savvy and world class marketing experience to this very beautiful, quiet corner of the world. Lynne was educated at the prestigious Ransom Everglades School in Coconut Grove, Florida. She attended Vanderbilt University, University of Paris, Sorbonne, and graduated with a BA from The University of Florida. She began her career assistant producing TV commercials, then started the Financial Public Relations division of a boutique investment banking firm in Miami. In 1990, she co-founded Miami O Guia, the first glossy full sized up market guide to Miami, written in Portuguese, specifically targeted to the then surging influx of wealthy Brazilian visitors. In 2000, she started her career in real estate as a residential appraiser then as an agent at EWM Realty in Miami. Her family re-located to Charlotte in 2007, and during the market downturn she worked in residential sales, helping investors build rental portfolios. As the market started to recover, she became more interested in second home and vacation home properties in the western NC mountains. This niche market has proven to be a treasure trove of undervalued properties which have yet to recover to pre-bubble prices. Below market values, a temperate climate, dream location, a surge in the number of empty nesters and retires looking to make their next move, and the sudden global recognition from Tryon Equestrian Center, makes Tyron the place to be.
