From the Zillow listing:


Unique doesn’t begin to describe this property!    Almost 14-acres of mostly flat land (with some fencing already in place) is anchored by a LOG CABIN (built c. 1894) around which the rest of the house was constructed in 2004!  The property has been vacant for the past few years and needs some work–mostly cosmetic in nature.  There is plenty of land for horses or cattle. and a barn which is salvageable, but also in need of some repair.    Lots of possibilities here.  Secluded homestead?  Farm?  Horse Property?  B&B?  Timbering opportunities?  Let your imagination be your guide!  A little bit of TLC will have this diamond-in-the-rough shining again in no time!  This is a fantastic opportunity to have a $400K+ property for under $300,000!!!
