Hortons Creek Road on 3+ Acres

32 Hortons Creek Road, Burnsville, NC, USA
$500,000

Description

Yancey County was founded by English, Irish and Scottish settlers in 1833. They were mostly agricultural farmers and Burley Tobacco was their main crop. For this they needed farmland and as they came through Paint Fork Gap, they found plenty of it along the Prices Creek River Valley. One stop on their journey was an artesian spring where they stopped for a refreshing drink. That spring house is still in existence today, supplying water for those who wish a drink. Sitting sentinel over this spring is a historic home that was built in 1890 to farm the surrounding land.

In its 128 year history, the farmhouse on Hortons Creek Road has seen many families come and go. Some were farmers, some well to do business men. More recently it was shared with travelers as a Vacation Rental. Regardless of who owned this home, it was well cared for, well-loved and is a shining example of 19th Century American Architecture. The heart pine floors and fireplace hearths remind you of an earlier time. Details such as the engraved brass door knobs and hinges have been lovingly preserved. Period light fixtures have been restored or added to maintain the character of the home. A Heartland Stove graces the spacious kitchen. The stained glass panel in the half bath has been dated back to the same age as the house and could very well be original to the home.

With this home, old does meet new. All windows have been updated with energy efficient double pain, tilt out windows. Two heat pumps were added for zoned heating and cooling with the original boiler system still in use for cold winter days. The homes electric system is updated and a new metal roof was installed with a 50 year warranty. Propane was brought in for the dining room fireplace, patio grill and garage heat. Granite counter tops were added as well as tile in the bathrooms and showers. Somewhere along the way an RV pad and a 3 bay garage was added with an open loft that could be converted to an apartment.

This is one of the best kept homes of its era that I have had the pleasure to visit. I envy the person who will call it home. I can picture summer evenings on the front porch, watching the dogs romp in the front garden while the horses graze in the pasture across the road. Maybe a friend is flyfishing in the trout stream, attempting to catch that nights dinner. The smaller stream to the side of the property is gurgling and adding to the peaceful sound of the crickets in the yard. All of this while sipping your tea, taking in the beauty of the surrounding mountains and enjoying the peaceful splendor of the valley. What a place to call home. What a place to visit if you want a B&B! What a place to call YOURS!
