Beautiful area in the North Carolina mountains! This home was built in 1928. It is located on 1.34 acres in Vilas, North Carolina. The home features a covered front porch, hardwood floors. wood ceilings, baseboards and a claw foot tub. There is an enclosed porch and the laundry room used to be the spring house and still has the troughs that would have held the crocks of milk to keep cool by running spring water. I would definitely tone down the kitchen colors if it were my home. There is a detached building on the property. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms and 1,946 square feet. $325,000

From the Zillow listing:


Super charming, picturesque setting, short drive to downtown Boone. First time on the market, this property has been in the family since the 1800’s. Foundation was reinforced & the inviting covered front porch & metal roof were done in 2008. All the windows have been replaced & there is now a shared well. Filled with historic charm such as the original clawfoot bathtub and the laundry room used to be the spring house & still has the trough where crocks held milk etc. to be kept cold as the spring water ran through. 1 spacious bedroom on main level; 2nd level has 2 large bedrooms & a half bath in 1 of the bedrooms, one could build a wall & separate bedroom entrance so the bathroom could service the 2nd floor better. The landing could be a great art area/office. Lovely yard with garden, grapevine, apple tree with heirloom yellow apples, blackberry bushes, a spring comes up under the cherry tree & a gently running brook adds to the enchanting setting. Outbuilding has dirt floor but good roof & stays dry, take out the partition & it would be a great studio; back in the day there was a Ford Model T parked in there! Rare opportunity to own a piece of Appalachian history. Sold “As-Is”
