Note:

The original Lynncote I was a picturesque stone house planned for the Erskine family in the 1890s and attributed to architect Richard Sharp Smith. It was gutted by fire in 1916, and several years later an Erskine daughter, Susan, and her husband, Carroll Pickens Rogers, commissioned Stillwell to rebuild and use the surviving stone walls. He produced a dramatically picturesque Tudor Revival residence that is one of the finest of its style in western North Carolina.
