November 5, 2018

Needs work and updating, but I love the property! That cascading stream and the little waterfalls! Built in 1930. Located on 4.36 acres in Bakersville, North Carolina. The property is at 3,600 feet elevation. Three bedrooms, four bathrooms and 2,448 square feet. $119,900 New price: $92,900

From the Zillow listing:


The mountain-fed stream roaring over the big boulders within earshot of this house is amazing! This loud, rocky, cascade-filled stream arises from high-in-the-sky Roan Mountain and tumbles through the vast National Forest Service lands and right by this 4+ Acre tract. Main house and guest house are located above an open field – plenty of sunshine for gardening, animals, pasture. End of the paved road, 3600′ elevation, southern exposure. Masonry fireplace in large living room. Big back deck. Front deck has missing deckboards. Spacious home might have some remodeling with an addition some years ago which included two spacious bedrooms and two full baths in upper level. Main level has rooms which would function as 3 BR, 1.5 BA. May have been used as 4-5 BR/3.5 BA home in the past, BUT septic permit was not found for home – tax card says 1930’s age – tax card lists house as 3 BR main house – extent/age of remodeling is unknown. Some rooms have low ceilings. Guest house floor plan had kitchenette, sitting room, bath, bedroom. Spring water. Needs work. SOLD AS IS. Proof of funds or pre-qual letter required with offer. Mountain views possible in winter. Five miles from Bakersville.
