From the Zillow listing:


Situated on 10 acres in Orange County, this 1876 farm house was fully renovated & remodeled in 2005. Simply one of the most unique properties to hit the market, this home has been lovingly restored. Modern finishes were used to enhance original one-of-a-kind architectural features. As you drive up to the home, you will notice the split-rail fence and lovely old elm trees that frame the home perfectly. Spend time on the front porch swing, overlooking the cleared pasture. As you walk around the home, you can see how much love and care was put into the gardens and landscape, leading to a screened porch, patio and custom fire pit, which was built with stones from the original foundation of the home. Inside, you will find all of the modern conveniences, including an updated kitchen & master bathroom, heart pine floors & wainscoting, custom cabinet doors made from the original windows on the home & 4 fireplaces (1 working). A 2 car garage, oversized storage areas throughout the upstairs, multiple storage buildings & a whole house wood stove round out this unique property. 15 mins to Hillsborough, Durham. 30 mins to C-H.
