I love any house near the Blue Ridge Mountains! This one is a beauty! Located in Lenoir, North Carolina which is in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. This house was built in 1884. There is a guest area above the original carriage house that has one room and a bathroom. Located on 1.2 acres. Six bedrooms, five bathrooms, and 4,683 square feet. $340,000

From the Zillow listing:


This is a special home, special not just because of its character and elegance, but because of its current beauty, efficiencies and comfort. This home has been lived in, loved and cared for since 1884. Heat pumps for each level for heat and cooling with back up heat with a gas boiler and steam heat. Modern kitchen with granite countertops and many other features. The traditional high ceilings, detailed woodwork, moldings and other craftsman features have been enjoyed and admired for years. The current owners just replaced the windows. Much of the home has been recently repainted. When you drive up to the home, you will be pleased with the beauty of the outside and the setting. When you go inside, the entrance is fantastic and as you tour all of the rooms, you will enjoy the comfort of the present while visiting the past. There is a room above the detached garage, once the carriage house, with a half bath for a guest room. You really do need to see this home to appreciate it.
