Wasn’t expecting that interior with this North Carolina mountain cabin! Built in 1850. Located on 2.5 acres in Old Fort, North Carolina. The acreage is mostly level and has a raised vegetable garden. There is a wooded area at the back of the property that extends to Crooked Creek. The property has apple and peach trees, as well as blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and strawberries! There are perennial flower gardens also. Part of the home was built with hand hewn timbers. In the 1980’s an addition was added to the home. They also added in a full basement. One bedroom, one bathroom, and 976 square feet. $148,000

From the Zillow listing:


The land: Mostly level 2.5 acres. Wooded area at the back of the property extends to Crooked Creek. Two antique log outbuildings near the house. Garden and orchard areas include apple and peach trees, blueberry bushes, large strawberry bed, blackberry and red raspberry rows, flower gardens, perennial gardens with herbs and edibles. Large raised bed veggie garden. Small fish ponds need to be rehabbed but had goldfish and frogs. Majority of the property is cleared and maintained; there is plenty of open and sun-filled land for larger garden areas if desired. The home:Built in the early 1800’s, the original part of the home is constructed with hand-hewn oak timbers. The past owners put an addition on the back of the home in the 80’s, along with digging a new full basement with exterior access. The basement is unfinished but has high ceilings and a wood stove, making it excellent for a workshop. The home needs cosmetic work, but owner has lived there full-time for almost 3 years.
