From the Zillow listing:


1930’s Farmhouse with a modern flair! This brick two story has been completely renovated with major improvements throughout. Dramatic 14 foot ceilings in the LR and DR! The kitchen has all new cabinets, granite, appliances and under cabinet lighting! New rustic style flooring! Metal roofing. The bathroom features a ceramic tile floor that extends into the tub/shower area. Windows galore with great southern exposure! If it’s electrical, plumbing, drywall, paint or insulation, then think NEW! Family and friends will enjoy your private fish pond that is fed by not one, but two bold streams. You can enjoy the pond and stream from many of the rooms in the home. Take a moment to reflect at the Prayer Rock outcropping. Plenty of yard for children and pets and gardens, and an outbuilding for storage. A paved driveway too! 3200′ above sea level. This home is within 600′ of one of the access points for the Three Top Mountain Game Lands, a nature conservancy of nearly 3,000 acres for hikers, hunters and birders. Some areas have ceilings height below 7′ and are counted in the total living area – this was common in older homes built here in the middle of the last century.
