“Honey Pot Hollow”, Circa 1942. On 14 acres in the NC mountains. $299,900

March 12, 2024

Such a beautiful area in the North Carolina mountains! “Honey Pot Hollow” was built in 1942. It is located on 14 acres in Sylva, North Carolina. The house could use some updating, but it is definitely livable. If it were mine, I would move in and go room by room. I would definitely be getting rid of that flooring choice.  Check out those views! If ceilings are at a certain height, those spaces can’t be counted in the square footage. Two bedrooms and one bathroom. $299,900
