Drafty!! But this would be so much fun to own. No telling what treasures you could find on your 14 acres. Built in 1780 in Independence, Virginia. Looks like they started restoration on it. You could go to your cabin and camp out inside it. 🙂 $125,900

From the Zillow listing:


14.7 acres and Historic Log Structure located in Blue Ridge Mountains. This Grayson County VA treasure is waiting on a new owner to finish it’s loving restoration. This circa 1780’s log home is rich in history and comprised of massive hand hewn logs and is located in a picturesque setting on a quiet, country, state maintained road not far from the New River. The property is full mature timber with notable Black Walnut trees on a lovely lawn around house.

There is a good potential pond site and several wonderful building sites around the property. There is a lot of development potential with this property, it could make a wonderful artists retreat or camp. Spring water serviced this home once upon a time and spring box is still on property as well as electrical service although the house is not currently wired for use.
