Love the old buildings included with this house! The post office looks like it was a general store also. This landmark property was built in 1895. It is located on 14.55 acres in Zionville, North Carolina in the NC mountains. Those old pictures they included with the listing are great! The interior of the house could use some work. Seems a little plain to me. But how about those porches and the views!! The two buildings included date back to the 1870’s! One is the Old Mabel Methodist Church. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,138 square feet. $524,900
