From the Zillow listing:


Rock your cares away on the covered porch of this sweet farmhouse with almost 6 acres just 10 minutes to downtown Boone and Appalachian State University. The land has a mixture of pasture and woods with an old orchard that could be revived. The property goes up to the ridge providing plenty of garden space and privacy. Living room has wood floors, original beadboard walls and stone hearth with flue ready for a woodstove. Huge kitchen with access to covered back porch and great storage in the attached spring house room. Office or den area in kitchen. Main floor bedroom has built in closets and attached tiled bath and laundry. Upstairs you’ll find another sleeping room and den but due to ceiling height cannot be counted in square footage. Wonderful studio and workshop located in the backyard. Studio is a 2 season building with electricity but could be insulated. This home was a successful Airbnb and is now on a month to month lease. Tenants will need 60 days to relocate. To be respectful of the tenants, showings are limited to Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 3:00-6:00. Seller is out of state presently and is selling “AS-IS” and will not consider negotiations on price.
