Landrum, which cozies up to the North Carolina state line, is the heart of horse country around here. The equestrian lifestyle attracts visitors and home buyers to this rural mountain town just 30 minutes from Asheville.

Key Features

Proximity to North Carolina: The Landrum city limits sit less than a mile from North Carolina, bringing Tryon, Hendersonville, and Asheville within easy reach. Why limit yourself to one state when you can sample the delights of two?

Tryon International Equestrian Center: Just over the border in North Carolina, the Tryon International Equestrian Center draws international horse enthusiasts to major events throughout the year. The Equestrian Center anchors Tryon Resort, a destination for locals and out of towners alike.
