Abandoned Log Cabin On 15 Acres In The North Carolina Mountains. Circa 1798. $249,000

Wow, this is really something special, in my opinion! The spot is lovely and not too far from Boone. This log house was actually built back in 1798! It’s located in Creston, North Carolina, on a 15-acre piece of land. The front porch is covered, and the chimney is made of stacked stone. Inside, you’ll find hardwood floors, a stone fireplace, and even a loft room. The property also includes a creek, a barn, two ponds, and a storage building. The house itself is 1,360 square feet with two bedrooms and one bathroom. All of this can be yours for $249,000.

Imagine becoming the proud owner of a truly unique piece of Appalachian history! This log home dates all the way back to 1798 and boasts two bedrooms, one bathroom, and a generous 15 acres of land. It might just be the oldest inhabited cabin in the whole High County area. And the best part? The cabin has those charming hand-hewn logs, each two feet wide and two feet long, throughout the structure. Inside, there are hardwood floors, a massive stone fireplace with a chimney that now holds gas logs, delightful stained glass windows, and even a modernized spacious kitchen and laundry area.

Inside, the place has been updated with cool features like a sliding barn door, those tongue-and-groove walls, and new fixtures. The electrical system has also been upgraded, although the work isn’t completely done due to some unexpected challenges. Outside, the property spans a whopping 1,500 feet along a paved road and includes not just one, but two ponds, a flowing creek, a barn, and a 16 by 20-foot storage building.

You’ve got a bunch of choices for where to build on the land to capture those stunning views. Plus, being so close to the North Fork of the New River means you’re in for some fantastic trout fishing – a real treat for North Carolina! And when you’re in the mood for town life, you’re just half an hour away from West Jefferson and Boone, and a quick fifteen-minute drive from Mountain City, Tennessee. With a little bit of updating and renovating, this place could be your perfect dream home. It’s truly one-of-a-kind and offers endless possibilities!
