From the Zillow listing:


This is a PERFECT property for the RIGHT PERSON. Are you handy? Love a project? This one is for you!!! The 1,962 square foot, two-story farmhouse was built in 1925, although some sources state 1924. It was moved to its current location several years ago and has not been lived in for several years. While the house seems to have good bones, there is obviously much work to be done here. The house is plumbed…but not hooked up to the septic system. It is wired…but has no electric utilities running to it. Of course this house was originally intended to be heated with wood stoves…but there are no wood stoves in it. There is a chimney which is plumbed for wood stoves to be placed on both floors. The real draw here is the property: Over 78 acres with a stream right on Blowing Rock Boulevard (NC-321) just a few miles south of fantastic downtown Blowing Rock, NC! The property occupies BOTH sides of the road and is adjacent to the desirable FALCON CREST subdivision. The view is currently wooded, but the potential views are fantastic, given that the new owner’s will also own the property on the west side of the road! Land opportunities like this just do not come along very often.
