Nice porch! This home was built in 1899. It is located on .65 acres in Burnsville, North Carolina. I have to say these pictures are a bit irritating. The house has original hardwood floors. Nice front door! The home is situated in the Jacks Creek farming community in the NC mountains. Only 40 minutes to Asheville, North Carolina. Three bedrooms, one bathroom, and 1,857 square feet. $149,000

From the Zillow listing:


Turn of the century farmhouse, just 4 miles from Hwy. 19. in the rural Jacks Creek farming community. With 1857 square feet, this home features extra large bedrooms (one downstairs and two upstairs), a remodeled bathroom and kitchen with appliances including washer and dryer. Two fireplaces, one in the living room and another in the downstairs bedroom that’s waiting to be functional again. Step back in time…from the large front veranda enter through the double french doors and with sidelights into a large foyer. The side entrance features a screened porch off the kitchen. This home is livable as is but begs for a new owner to take it to the next level with renovations that would take it from its $80 per square foot value to possible $150 per square foot or more. Isn’t the living room photo with the virtual renovation and staging just amazing! So many possibilities from creating a more open floor plan to enclosing the screen porch to laundry/mud room.
