Historic House Listings

Off market. TWO houses on FIVE acres in the North Carolina mountains. Circa 1876. $400,000

Love the creek on this property! This listing includes two houses. You could live in one and rent out the other. One of the houses was built in 1876. It is located on 5.52 acres in Bakersville, North Carolina. This seems a bit expensive to me. Everything in the mountains is selling like crazy though and this is a nice area. The home features hardwood floors, exposed beams, stone fireplace and a loft area. There is a pretty creek on the property and a chicken coop. This property brings in $20,000 a year in rental revenue. One bedroom, one bathroom and 839 square feet. $400,000

From the Zillow listing:


You have to check out this mountain MINI-FARM with CREEKS, PASTURE, HIGH SPEED INTERNET & 2 HOMES sold FURNISHED! One is a lovingly restored & meticulously maintained cabin built in 1876 with new heat/AC & a loft used as two sleeping areas(no door between). It has proven itself as a great vacation rental netting $20k each year during warmer months. The other is a two story barn that has been finished & heated for additional living space. Upstairs you’ll find a great efficiency apartment & downstairs has been used as flex space-living/exercise/workshop with a half bath. A great little rocky creek runs down through the property with pools for the ducks to enjoy. Large portion of the property is flat/gently sloping fenced pasture & has been split up to allow spaces for all of the critters. Big shed, carport, & TONS OF STORAGE. The barn home has a GENERATOR for Backup power! Elevation of 3000’+ to enjoy cool summers but south facing for gardening. Not much like it, so get it while you can!
