From the Zillow listing:


Historic 1840s lovingly remodeled 5 bedroom Watauga County farmhouse. Picturesque setting with a huge yard and babbling creek, the enchanting stone wall and super charming old barn give this property great character. Gorgeous upgrades including custom cabinetry, gas range, barnwood accents, granite and quartz countertops, tongue & groove ceiling in the dining room, luxury vinyl plank in the kitchen while most of the flooring in the house is the gorgeous old hardwood. Beautifully remodeled while still honoring the historic nature of the home. Opposite the spacious living room on the main level is a room currently used as a workshop that could be a lovely parlor/sitting room or office. Upstairs the sellers have made great use of the 5 bedrooms turning one of the bedrooms into a closet/dressing room with awesome built-ins, and another into a quaint library. Sellers removed all the wallpaper in the primary bedroom unveiling the shiplap plank; the headboard attached to the wall is made from tobacco sticks found in the barn. Super special home! Incredible opportunity to own a piece of Watauga County history.
