From the Zillow listing:


This is a hand hewn log home with 84 acres including 3 large bottoms for gardening, landscaping, raising livestock, or bailing hay. The home is two stories with city water, well water (that has never run dry – even in the worst droughts in the past 50 years), natural gas, electric, extremely high-speed internet (one of the best in the United States). In addition to the home, there is a 600 sq. ft. “general store” styled building that is perfect for a man-cave, she-shed, overnight guests, etc. Also beside the home is a cellar/pump house with an above building that used to be a functioning apt. with kitchenette, etc. A well stocked fish pond is a short walk up the yard. Where a tobacco barn once stood, there is a plot that is ready for a new home/4 car garage. A 24′ x 44′ picnic pavilion with electric for parties, weddings, reunions, etc. is right off the back porch. The home has never flooded, even during the 100 year flood of 6 years ago. Standing timber valued at $60,000 in 1996. A road to our “Tipi Site” clearing, 1/5 mile away, is ready for camping, cook-outs, hunting, or just enjoying a “clearing in the woods” for clearing of your mind! Just look at the photos for your possibilities. Situated in Lincoln County West Virginia, only 3 miles from the county seat of Hamlin, WV 25523.
