In the mountains of North Carolina, there are fruit trees and grape bushes! The house could use some repairs and updates, but it’s not terrible. In 1925, the house was built. It is on 12.98 acres in the North Carolina town of Marshall. The front porch of the house is covered, and there is a separate building on the land. It would be nice to take up the carpet and take down the woodwork. It is 1,135 square feet and has three bedrooms and one bathroom. $249,900
From the Zillow listing:
Old home in the Big Pine neighborhood of Marshall with 12.98 acres of beautiful farm land. The main level of the 1925 house has a big open kitchen/living room area, one bedroom, and one full bathroom. Upstairs, there are more rooms that are linked by a bonus room. The house is heated by a woodstove in the basement and a gas monitor heater. There is no air conditioning. This house has a lot of promise, so bring your ideas with you. The land is hilly and has been cleared. There are two big barns and a number of outbuildings, as well as a fenced pasture, fruit trees, and a grapevine. There is a lot of room for gardening, green houses, extra buildings/barns, and animals of all sizes. Marshall is a 40-minute drive away and has food stores, shops, and restaurants. Asheville is an hour away. This one is a homesteader’s dream because it is alone on the winding back roads of Madison County and has great farm land that can be used. Upstairs, there is an extra 642 square feet of area that is not heated and is not counted in the square footage.
