From the Zillow listing:


This Appalachian mountain home will take you back to a more relaxing time surrounded by the unspoiled, and pristine wilderness areas of Jocassee Gorges heritage preserve. Sit on the old time rocking chair front porch and listen to the wind blowing through the ancient forests, to the birds singing in the majestic hardwoods, with the peaceful sounds of the rushing waters of Rocky bottom creek as she sings the song of the mountains. All this will combine to provide a very calming peace. This home is almost 100 years old, and will speak to your soul, if you will but listen. The famous Shamrock home, where President Johnson once stayed, offers 2 bedrooms, the Bunk house has another 2 bedrooms above the garage/workshop, and the Trout stream house offers 2 bedrooms as well. This property is perfect for the rental program or live in the main home and rent the other homes. It also would be fine if you need space for other relatives to live. This home has had numerous updates and recent remodels.
