Good luck with it. up

I've been to Atlanta and the metro area, no thanks. Sorry you have to live there.

Hope you enjoy yard work - good excuse for a little tractor or whatever...

We thought it was a good deal too, the seller was motivated as she already had a contract on another house contingent on selling this one.
I don't blame her for not wanting to stay out there alone but since she just bought it in November of 2018 I had to ask if the house was haunted. lol I mean it is 120 years old.

I don't know what she paid for it. She bought it in November of '18 as a 60 acre plot. Sold off 45 acres mostly on the mountain in April. Did a lot of work on the house and then they broke up. It was on the market 5 days and no the well does not belong to me.

In most parts of the country county websites provide access to land records and it's pretty interesting. Shows tax maps, previous permits, previous sale prices, splits, etc, etc and I find it pretty interesting. Web for Holler County MoN, WV may not be operating in this century though.

I thought the floor plan looked a bit tight myself and no way I'd give up my king size water bed. With something 120 yrs old I'd be concerned about what kind of foundation, last time the windows were updated, general insulation and what kinda mess the wiring is.

Another thing for your shopping list: an old clapped out Dodge 4wd with a plow for the driveway.

my house was built in 1872 [the deed at the courthouse says it includes a cow ! i'm still lookin' for it....... shruggy] with a sand and stone foundation. i'm constantly repairing spots of that, as well as other do-dads on this place, although the outside looks good with modern style siding, windows, and roof.

make sure you look over the foundation real good. i ended up in my place solely because my rented place was suddenly being razzed for a parking lot of all things, and i had 30 days notice to vacate. eek

Man, that is a bit way to isolated for me. With getting older, I figure about 20 minutes to a town with a hospital, pharmacy, etc. Where do you even buy gas around there?

The house is old but has been updated and added on to. You can tell the house didn't originally have indoor plumbing lol. But it's very nice with double pane windows and a metal roof and such. The garage is a good size to work in and it has a chicken coop as well. It's definitely secluded and private. It's very serene. About an hour to a K Mart and Kroger. There is a gas station and small convience store about 10 miles down the one lane roads you take to get in there. The property is gorgous. The house is very well suited for us. Two apple trees two peach trees blackberries and eldeberries. There is a place for a garden and a shooting area.
So we loved it and signed the contract.

Oh and there is no restriction on the free gas as long as it goes to one dwelling. She says her electric bill is only about $35/month. Yeah I like the sound of that. The garage is wired for a welder and a compressor. We are excited.
