From the Zillow listing:


Unique mountain homestead seeking new owners ready to move in with dreams of self-sufficiency and getting away from the daily grind. Partially remodeled 1800’s cabin is loaded with charm and character from the exposed massive American Chestnut logs used to construct the original cabin, right down to the intricate wooden hinges adorning doors throughout the home. Imagine enjoying quiet fall and winter nights soaking in the warmth from the living room fireplace while the spring fed swimming pond is sure to cool you off on the hottest summer day. The property has been used to intensively raise livestock and most of the electrical fencing is intact and ready to be put to use once again. An enormous workshop has a view of the pond and is large enough to accommodate the aspiring or professional woodworker or tinkerer. Several established raised beds in place for growing your own food.
