Graystone: Tracy and John McMillin

Graystone was a Civil War-era timber home. In the 1930s, a German stonemason hired by the owner faced the entire house with 12″thick granite blocks from area quarries. The south side of the home ó four rooms and a two-car garage óand a full granite-block basement were added during the renovation. The McMillins bought Graystone in 2002. They added exterior copper awnings, enclosed the entry vestibule, renovated the kitchen, added built-in bookshelves to the family room and installed period lighting. They also stabilized and upgraded the entire dwelling. Some furnishings descended in the family; others were creatively collected from auction, antique shops, Habitat, Metrolina and along the side of the road. Originally surrounded by 100 wooded acres and overlooking Mirror Lake, Graystone is now located at the rear of the Oakview Commons subdivision, 31/2 miles from downtown Salisbury.
The tour includes the first floor and basement. Graystone ó the oldest home on the 2008 OctoberTour ó is a must see!
