Historic House Listings

Love the old pictures! Former post office! Circa 1884 in the NC mountains. $273,000

September 28, 2022

This is the first time this home has ever been on the market! The front room was the original town post office. The Yoder House was built in 1884. It is located on .65 acres in Linville, North Carolina in the NC mountains. I love the old pictures they included with this listing. The home has original wormy chestnut paneling, hardwood floors, two staircases and there is original siding under the current siding. Mountain properties are selling like hotcakes and Linville is a very nice area, but this price seems too high to me. No electricity or plumbing maintained inside the home. Four bedrooms, one bathroom and 1,500 square feet. $295,000 New price: $273,000

From the Zillow listing:


First time on Market!! Rare opportunity to own a piece of Linville History. The Yoder house has been a staple in Linville since 1884. It is an interesting example of 19th century architecture. The interior is exposed wormy chestnut paneling except for the front room which housed the Linville Post Office for 28 years. The architectural design of this home with asymmetric gables and one gambrel dormer. You will find this historical home breathtaking. Underneath the existing siding you will find the original Diamond cut wood siding. Inside the home there is no sheetrock. Entire interior designed with wood walls, ceilings and floors. Two staircases with access the kitchen and the dining room. The home is being sold with the adjoining lot making a total of around .65 of an acre. It will be up to a new buyer to have new survey. The home is sold as is where is. There are no electrical or plumbing services maintained inside the home. It will be up to the new buyer to upgrade these utilities. There will be a stipulation on the new deed that the new owner has to maintain the existing structure of the home and the home can not be torn down.
