Welcome to The Wynne House Inn, a historic property in the heart of Holly Springs. The Wynne House, along with The Hummingbird Cottage at 235 Roberts Ave. (being sold together), is an established bed & breakfast offering 4 bedrooms & 3.5 bathrooms in the main house & 2 bedrooms with 1 bathroom in the cottage. There are many configurations this property would work for - live in all or part of the main house & rent out rooms & the cottage or vice versa or step right into using both houses as your own bed & breakfast. The sellers enjoy many repeat guests & will train someone on the systems of the bed & breakfast business if a buyer is interested.

Through the front entrance, a large foyer with a beautiful staircase welcomes you. To the left, you'll find a sitting room, currently being used as a second dining room, the first of 2 primary suites with a full bath, & a half bath in the hallway.

On the other side of the foyer, you'll find the living room & the beautiful main dining room with exposed beams & plenty of space to host your guests. This room's southern exposure simply floods it with natural light. The current owners use this room to serve breakfast each morning to their guests.

You'll find the kitchen at the back of the house, complete with commercial appliances (all staying!) & plenty of counter & cabinet space.

At the upper landing of the staircase, you'll find the second primary suite (and the largest bedroom in the house) to your left. The sellers have named this suite The White Room, due to the ample amount of natural light that pours in the windows. The en-suite bath offers a standup shower, claw foot soaking tub imported from South Africa, & a large walk-in closet.

Across the landing are The Blues Room and The Ruby Room, named for Ruby Elzy, a Broadway & movie star discovered at Rust College, just down the street from The Wynne House. Both rooms are large & offer plenty of closet space. These 2 bedrooms share a bathroom at the end of the hall, with a clawfoot tub/shower combo & the washer and dryer. There is an additional storage room at the end of the hallway where you can see the original exterior of the home & the fire escape that leads to the spiral staircase in the courtyard.

Throughout the home, you'll marvel at the care taken during the nearly 7-year renovation to restore & preserve as much as possible - the beautiful fixtures, working pocket doors, original hardwood floors, doors, & crown molding. Most of the plaster has been replaced with sheet rock & insulation has been added throughout. There are 7 fireplaces in the main house; none are in operation, but 5 have been stubbed out for gas & could be finished out to be gas log fireplaces.

The Hummingbird Cottage - so named because its first guests were in town for The Annual Hummingbird Migration Celebration - offers complete privacy from the main house. With a cozy living area, fully equipped kitchen & laundry, & a sunroom with a vaulted ceiling, the cottage can sleep 4 comfortably with 2 bedrooms & 1 bath with a clawfoot tub.

Outdoors, you'll appreciate the Italianate architecture; The Wynne House is 1 of only 3 such homes in Holly Springs. Enjoy a glass of tea as you watch the sun set from the front porch or kick back in the courtyard with a snack & a good book. The entire lot is secure with fencing & keypad gates for the walkways & cottage parking. While the properties are zoned residential, the sellers have obtained a ''restaurant exception'' zoning that you could use simply by swapping out the sinks in the main house (3 compartment sink for dishes & a separate handwashing sink are required, but not currently installed). The property has been a part of th
