July 3, 2021

I love the log house on the property! The price doesn’t seem all that bad for this! The home was built in 1911. It is located on 5.3 acres in Rural Retreat, Virginia. The home features original hardwood floors, pocket doors, wainscoting, bay windows and vintage light fixtures. I bet there are hardwood floors underneath the carpeting inside the home. The house has solid wood doors and pressed tin ceiling. The property has several outbuildings, including a log house and a smokehouse. Five bedrooms, two bathrooms and 4,053 square feet. $400,000
