November 3, 2020

Love the North Carolina mountains! This would make a great vacation spot! This home was built in 1911. It is located on two acres in Burnsville, North Carolina. The house could definitely use some updating and undoing of past renovations, but it has a lot of potential. There is a fast moving fishing stream across the road from the house. The home has some hardwood floors, but I bet there are some underneath the carpeting. There are stone features and exposed beams. The house has a wood burning fireplace. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,174 square feet. $189,000
