1931 Original Log Cabin with 40 mile Southern long range views. Private setting sitting above the highway where you travel a non-descript narrow gravel road flanked by wildflowers, ferns and rocks to reach homesite. Fruit trees and a beautiful view of Linville Ridge awaits you at your arrival. Basically three rooms, Living Room with wood burning fireplace, Kitchen and walk-in paantry, Bedroom and Half Bath. Outside old root cellar has been conformed to a half bath.Original sstone foundation and surrounding walkways are original and a handbuilt stone wall at the back of the home is a true work of art! The home as it sits is how it has existed for years; changes to the exterior of the home are few caused more by time and nature;not man. The inside of the home could be described by the term "Organized Confusion"! Anything that could be hung on a nail can be found on the interior walls. Built by Dr. C.F. Sayles , Miami, Fla and 1931 is carved in hearth. I tell you HE loved this house!
