: Due to illness, we are looking for a special buyer who will appreciate our historic home in the Ozark hills of Arkansas.
: It is one of the two original log cabins built in an area that later became a limestone mining town that no longer exists (gone the way of other "ghost towns").
: The cabin was built over 100 years ago and still has the original hand-hewn logs well in place. The towering rock fireplace is built from rocks quarried from the property--but it does need some repair to make it usable.
: Situated on 10 acres which are heavily treed including lots of cedar. Timber can be farmed/sold once property has been paid for. Year-round creek is approx 50' from front of cabin with over 200' of embankment. Wildlife galore!
: Artifacts found all over the property (for instance, someone along the way used newspaper for wallpaper and we found a piece of an article describing rescue boats searching for Titanic survivors -- cool!).
: Located two miles in on county road from a major highway, close to the White River and all sorts of recreational opportunities. Historic cemeteries closeby and there is a very active historical society/museum in a nearby town.
: The cabin does need some TLC but is quite liveable -- in fact we were living in it as we worked to restore it to its original glory. Electric and phone are installed -- but you will eventual want to intall a septic system and a well. There is a public spring in the area and we were told by a "old timer" that there are springs on our property, but we did not have time/money to locate. There are NO code restrictions!
: Asking only $20,000 -- terms available. Refrigerator, rain barrel, some furniture included.
: If you are interested (or you have any questions), please email us.
