104 acres bordering a national forest, yes please!! Love the trout stream out back. The interior lacks a lot of the 1700’s feel, but I could still make it work. 🙂 And there is a chicken coop! Built in 1796. Located on 104.13 acres in Covington, Virginia. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,379 square feet. $460,000

From the Zillow listing:


Unique in many ways. The pre-1800’s log house is special itself. It has been carefully renovated to keep the character of it’s age intact. The bold trout stream just off the back deck gives instant relaxation and is great for entertaining. There is plenty of acreage to hunt on and it also adjoins National Forest. The Kitchen is open to the living room which has deck access. Kitchen and bathroom countertops are granite. The spacious bedrooms have decorative fireplaces. Chicken coop for those fresh eggs.
