I have written many property descriptions before. However, this property is a little different. I have been familiar & fascinated with this home for 50 years. It is located just outside the city limits of my hometown, Ellerbe, NC. I have always admired this enchanting home & its inviting rocking chair front porch & lush acreage but also the stories that would be told if the walls could talk. Originally built in 1900 this 2300sf farmhouse is full of warmth. I imagined holidays with friends & family gathered around the floor to ceiling stone fireplace or summer evenings spent on the porch listening to the cicadas & whippoorwills or the rustling of nearby Rocky Creek near the border of the property. The proximity to Camp Millstone 4H Camp, John Lentz Firing Range, DeWitt’s Sporting Clays, the NC Field Trial Grounds & the extensive Sandhill Gameland Preserve make this a sportsman’s paradise. With features like beautiful wood flooring & trim, cathedral ceilings, French doors galore, slate flooring, built ins, & many windows with Plantation shutters that allow lots of natural light, there is no denying this is a true treasure. It has been lovingly updated yet has retained every drop of charm! When you enter the double solid wood front doors you step into a spacious foyer with a soaring ceiling & lovely staircase. The floorplan is very versatile with rooms that could be used as you wish. The owner’s suite is conveniently located on the main level & the en suite bath includes a jetted tub, separate shower & walk in closet. There is another flex room on the main level as well as a full guest bath. The living area offers room for casual & formal living as well as a home office & Carolina room. Upstairs you will find a bedroom on each end of the catwalk, which overlooks the foyer below. Each bedroom has built in drawers as a space saver. The exterior is as charming as the interior. There is a full length covered front porch for enjoying the shade as well as a wraparound deck to catch some rays. If you have spent the afternoon gardening in the well-established yard or trekking the 7+ ac tract to investigate the old tobacco barn, then you can cool down in the outdoor shower. There is plenty of space for farm animals & includes two outbuildings. The workshop/barn is wired w/220 power, has pneumatic lines and a bathroom. It has one area that has been used for a spray booth and has its own septic tank. Improvements over the years include a new foundation, updated wiring, plumbing, roof, HVAC, newer septic to main house & much more. Ideal for a Gentleman’s Farm, Horse Farm or just quiet country living. Make it your own slice of heaven! The barn is currently rented out but no lease in place so he will vacate before closing. Approx. 20 acres across the road are also available to purchase and listed on the MLS. Antler chandelier does not convey but will be replaced with a light. Barn is currently leased month to month but will/can terminate once property is sold.
