North Carolina mountain cabin! Beautiful setting! This house was built in 1939. It is located on 21.3 acres in Sugar Grove, North Carolina. It is only 30 minutes to downtown Boone. It needs work, but would make a perfect little farm or getaway! The property has a fish pond and a stream. There are several barns and outbuildings. The home has two rooms upstairs, but they are not counted in the square footage. One bedroom and one bathroom. $149,900

From the Zillow listing:


Major renovation project, but just imagine all you’ll have when it’s done! 20 acres, a fish pond, fenced garden spot that gets plenty of light, and a nice stream just out back. There are several barns and outbuildings that could perhaps be restored, or salvaged for materials. Mix of woods and field, the property has great potential for a hobby farm, and it’s only about half an hour from downtown Boone!  Two rooms upstairs used as bedrooms, but ceilings are only 6’6″, so the space isn’t counted in the total square footage.  A new well is needed, and a permit has already been acquired. A new survey has also just been completed. Will probably require septic repair or new septic system.The sellers live off the mountain, and are unwilling to do repairs.
