From the Zillow listing:


Back on Market: Out of state buyer changed mind, did not see in person, and no inspections performed. Homestead, Mini Farm, Cabins, Manufactured Homes, you name it, as “no restrictions” mean the next owner can fulfill their vision here! Bordering more than 300ft of stream to the North, this +/- 6.81 acre property with original farm house is a great opportunity for a do it yourself project or investor renovation. The home needs work, but is livable for the right person. Incredibly fertile bottom land near the home has been used as a large garden in the past. Old apple and pear trees are left over from the seller’s time as a child growing up in this home. Two logging roads create access to several potential homesites up the hill where great views are to be found. Located just North East of downtown Mars Hill off Hwy 19/23. Right of first refusal available for adjacent home on 1.14 acres recently surveyed out.
