Forget the 1796 Tennessee house. I want this one!!! Built in 1850 in Highlands, North Carolina in the southern Appalachian Mountains. Just a few miles to the Blue Ridge Parkway. I love that stove in the kitchen!! Very curious about the picture with the musket holes. You would have they would have talked more about that?? That’s the kind of history I like to know! One bedroom, two bathrooms, and 1,265 square feet. $250,000

From the Zillow listing:


The perfect antique log cabin retreat! Experience history and modern convenience in one charming and unique package. Constructed from logs hand-hewn in the 1850’s the cabin was relocated to the historic resort community of Balsam in 1974. Since then a second story with bedroom, bonus room, sun room, and utility room have been added. Enjoy stunning mountain sunsets next to the cast iron stove on the porch or hike scenic mountains trails on the Blue Ridge Parkway a few miles away. While the cabin itself feels as if you have been transported to another world, all the conveniences of downtown Waynesville and Sylva are just minutes away. Come experience the calm and inspiration for yourself!
