Just love this setting! This home was built in 1865. It is located on 5.78 acres in Burnsville, North Carolina. The interior needs some work. Would love to tear down the drop ceilings and just get everything out of the house. But this would make a great weekend retreat and job. The home still has the original rock fireplace. There are exposed logs. The home has covered front and back porches. The property has a one car carport, workshop, canning house, storage building, and a stream. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,538 square feet. $90,500

From the Zillow listing:


FARM HOUSE WITH A HISTORY. The two-story log house was built the year the Civil War ended, 1865. It later was expanded into this farm house with the outside of the logs covered. The loft was originally a closed room, but was converted to a loft so that from the living room the two stories of original rock fireplace & logs can be viewed. Presently the house has on the ground level a living room, bath, bedroom, great room with kitchen, dining, family room, and laundry/pantry. The second floor has a bedroom with bath and the loft which has been used as a bedroom with a closet. The covered front & back porch has room for swings and rocking chairs so you can enjoy the acre+ yard. The total acreage is 5.78 acres which includes a garden area and woods for wildlife to enjoy (turkey and deer). Property has a 1 car car-port, workshop, can house, and storage building. A stream runs along the property. No restrictions. HOME BEING SOLD AS IS.
