September 8, 2018

Not one, but TWO mountain cabins! The first one was built in the 1800’s by the Franklin family settlers in NC. The first one built by the Franklin family still retains the original stone fireplace, wood floors and walls. Two small additions were added on in the 1970’s. Behind the cabin is a two bedroom, one bathroom cottage. Would be great for guests or to use as an Airbnb. Located on .37 acres in Newland, North Carolina. Great area! One bedroom, two bathrooms, and 1,270 square feet. $205,000

From the Zillow listing:


(The descriptive data above pertains to #26; in addition, there are 2 bedrooms and 1 bath in the 600 sf 1929-vintage cottage at #56. These two residences are on one .37 acre parcel and share their well; they will not be sold separately.) Are you a fan of antique log cabins? This one is a beauty: built by the Franklin family settlers in the 1800’s, the living room and loft have been carefully preserved, including the fine stone fireplace, wood floors, and vaulted wood ceiling. Two wings with featherboard siding were added in the 1970s, creating a kitchen, dining area which opens to the deck, and a recently remodeled large bedroom and full bath. Another full bath and utility room were just finished in the lower level. Behind the cabin is a 2 bed/1 bath cottage, perfect for guests or renters. The wood paneled walls, floors, and ceilings, and gas log heater in the living room, provide mountain ambience. These residences, plus the adjoining lovely Craftsman home (1920’s vintage) at #16 and log ‘park model (1997) at #36, offer many options for year-round or vacation homes, or rental investments.
