Home sits on 1.6 tranquil acres, National Park land behind and adjacent to the Appalachian Trail. Escape and step back into time. Originally built in the 1800's this home boasts country character and old world charm. My love of antiquing and unique collections has fully furnised this home.

Take some quiet time to read a book, relax in the hammock, draw/ paint, perfect photo opportunities await or perhaps a possible song to compose while sitting around the fire pit. According to some of the old timers and as legend has it, locals gathered around sippin moonshine in the old still located on the property. Remains of a rock foundation stand in the back yard of what once housed a cow which provided fresh milk for the family then later to become a still to provide some entertainment and extra income. Many of songs and poems were written about these hills....
