From the Zillow listing:


BEAUTIFULLY RESTORED AND UPDATED! VERY PRIVATE! YOU’LL LOVE SOAKING IN THE VIEW OF THE TOE RIVER FROM THIS WONDERFUL FRONT PORCH! Walnut floors, birch and beech walls and ceilings add to the beauty and charm of the home. There is a great room, 3 bdrms, 2 baths and mud room on the first floor. Steps lead to a small balcony and another bdrm and bath upstairs. It’s such fun to watch the train on the CSX RR below the house. There are only about 2 trains every other day. The acreage is long and winds around with the curve of the river. This is a special property!
