From the Zillow listing:


This early 1900s home has been modernized and well appointed with all today’s necessities and luxuries!   Legend has it that the home was built by the grandson of David Jackson, a Scotsman who settled in this area, who was a tobacco farmer and also served the office of Magistrate.  Inside, you will see the care that was taken to maintain the original character of the home, from the completely rebuilt stacked stone wood burning fireplace with cedar mantle, to the knotty pine custom built cabinets!  The foyer has a staircase with metal spindles that leads to the private master suite.   Beautiful hardwood floors adorn the main level and lots of recessed lights are located throughout.   The living room is an excellent size, has tongue and groove ceilings, exposed beams, and is a cozy spot for spending time with family and friends.  The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and wood countertops that are beautiful and durable.  Downstairs is a secondary bedroom and a full bath in the hallway services the main level.  A storage closet can be found under the staircase.


A large deck has been freshly pressure washed and extends the entire left side of the home.  Plenty of space for grilling and seating your guests!  The private master suite is the entire second level and has a laundry closet, walk-in closet, and tile shower with dual shower heads!  The acre of unrestricted (fenced) property will be perfect for gardening, kids, and family pets/farm friends!  This is a unique opportunity to have a 100+ year old farmhouse that feels like you are living in a newer home!  Home is piped for central vacuum but does not have the canister.  This home is a pleasure to tour – don’t miss out on this Blue Ridge jewel!
