Love the creek! 4 acres in the NC mountains. Circa 1884. $125,000

June 9, 2021

I love the creek on this property! This was moved to the current location in 1992. This hand hewn log cabin was built in 1884. It is located on 4.4 acres in Brevard, North Carolina. This property is off grid. I would need more than an outhouse, but I think it would build character to make my kids use one. 🙂  The home features hardwood floors, log walls, and exposed beams. The property is pretty amazing. The creek runs the length of the property. It borders the Pisgah National Forest. One bedroom and 480 square feet. $125,000

From the Zillow listing:


Listings like this don’t come along every day! This off grid (I mean, it has an outhouse!) hand-hewn log cabin was built in Orange County NC in 1884 and moved to its current location and rebuilt & restored log by log in 1992. Formerly used as a hunting cabin, the current owners have loved it as a private getaway for the past several years and it comes very nicely furnished. Tucked away behind a locked gate, it sits on 4.4 acres and borders over 27,000 acres of Pisgah National Forest but is less than a mile and a half off Interstate 40 and 7 & a half miles from Exit 20 on Jonathan Creek. There is a 2,000 watt generator that powers the refrigerator, window unit air conditioner and ceiling fan. Propane runs the cookstove and there is a freestanding wood stove for heat. Sit on the covered porch and enjoy the solitude or perch up on the swing sitting on the creek that runs the length of the property.
