From the Zillow listing:


This one’s a Cutie! Classic country cottage in a beautiful countryside setting. The wide covered porch is perfect for morning coffee or tea and afternoon contemplation or relaxed conversation with friends. Entering the home you’re greeted by the original wood floors that anchor the character of this 2 bed/1 bath home. The charming living room leads to the eat-in kitchen with ample storage. Convenient washer and dryer connections are in the mudroom off the kitchen – a perfect location for more storage! The open lot is perfect for gardening, a dog run, chicken coops…all three or other! Store your yard tools in the walk-in crawlspace, maybe set up a little workshop. Just minutes from downtown Canton and 30 minutes from downtown Asheville. For weekend fun, take an easy, beautiful drive up to the Blue Ridge Parkway, or pop into the Chestnut Mountain Nature Park. Presently the home is rented and has a well-established rental history. Listing agents are the seller’s parents. Offered “as-is.”
