From the Zillow listing:


This house is a treasure of history and workmanship available at the turn of the century and unsurpassed in current times. This house of almost 3000 square feet sits on 3.5 acres and is over 100 years old, the story is it was an outpost for the NUWRAY INN in the town of Burnsville. A resting place for travelers and livestock along their journey. The integrity of the workmanship throughout this historic house is beyond describing. There is a possibility of 10 +- bedrooms, all with fireplaces. Currently there is only 1 bath, the kitchen has had some upgrades. All floors are wood, staircase, could be cherry, bannister is tiger maple. This house was supposedly built prior to electricity and indoor plumbing. Seems to have maintained the integrity of the craftsmanship, doors, windows, hardware, etc. This property will take an act of love, time and patience BUT at the end of the effort their can and could be unbelievable reward.
