From the Zillow listing:


Seller is looking for a thirty day closing (or less). Ten Thousand ($10,000) earnest money, “As Is…Where Is”. One of a kind, circa 1850s log cabin! Legend has it, that the hand hewn logs came from a home near the Biltmore Estate area. In the early 1990s, the home was assembled back together on this site. Located right at the NC/SC border, you will be amazed by the stunning craftsmanship of this log home! This home would be a great rental property, Air BnB, vacation home, or primary home for someone who is looking for simple country lifestyle! Left property line has a bold flowing creek complete with beaver dam! Enjoy the peacefulness and sounds of the creek from the covered porch that wraps three quarters of the way around the home! The tin roof sounds amazing during a steady rain storm and will hold up beautifully for years to come. There is no sheetrock in this cabin, mostly all reclaimed wood. The fireplace features two large hearthstones and outside, the chimney is surrounded in beautiful stacked stone. Gas log starter (if completed would need to be unvented logs). The current owner recently had a Jotal wood stove professionally installed in the living room, and power brought underground to property. All antique doors throughout with ceramic knobs. Old windows were used to keep the period feel of the home. Modern updates include a propane gas range, refrigerator, stand up shower, washer and dryer connections, and updated bath. The master bedroom is at the rear of the home next to the full bathroom and large walk-in closet. The eat-in Kitchen has a door to go out each side of the home. The living room is good size and has exposed beams. Wood flooring throughout with exception of the bathroom. The upstairs bedroom/bonus room could be used for many purposes. There is even a crawl in attic for additional storage. So many thoughtful touches make this delightful cabin totally unique and completely unexpected! Driveway runs along the creek line and wind up to the house which is set very far off the county road for maximum privacy! Property should accommodate one horse, possibly two, with 2.33 acres it is being sold with. Fertile grass will be a great place to raise any farm animal or crops! Come be amazed by this stunning cabin in a great secluded setting and all it has to offer! Pictures do not do it justice! Well on property. Property being sold as-is, where-is and all inspections to be made in advance of offer. Cash buyers or conventional buyers only.
