That interior sure was surprising! Very cozy and rustic feeling! This home was built in 1930 as an Eagle Scout project. It is located on three acres in Morgantown, Indiana. The home features a covered front porch, hardwood floors, log walls, wood ceilings, built-ins and a large stone fireplace. There is a detached storage building on the property. Close to hiking. The property adjoins Yellowwood State Forest. There really isn’t a bedroom. I would put a bed in the area with the curtains. One bathroom and 724 square feet. $149,900
