Living in the country feels downright luxurious in this 200-year-old log home bordering 7 acres of National Forest Service land. Located at 585 Crystal Creek Rd in Otto, NC, the farmhouse-meets-19th-century-cabin home is available for $449,900.
The home boasts a sun-soaked living room with walls of windows and a hand-built stone fireplace that leads right to the covered deck area – perfect for lazy afternoons of bird watching or enjoying the forest scenery right from the comfort of your couch. (The current owners say they’ve attracted quite a group of humming birds over the years.)
The luxury continues in the kitchen, where there’s a built-in espresso machine and a deep farmhouse sink.
The current owners worked with an architect to update the old log home, which had no heat, kitchen or “facilities” when they bought it. They built the connecting farmhouse, which houses the kitchen, master bedroom and 2 baths.
Featuring hand-hewn beams and pine floors recycled from an old factory, the finished product combines rustic architecture with a playful farmhouse look.
The home has a styled yet comfortable vibe, and designer details can be found everywhere, from the lighting to the sleek built-ins to the masterfully curated furnishings throughout.
