Imagine a perfect blend of the old and new in a rustic log cabin home.
This week's featured listing is all of that and more, tucked away on 30 acres in Hot Springs. Built in the 1780s, the original home has been carefully restored and expanded to create a 3-bedroom, 2-bath getaway on a beautiful parcel of land.
Somehow, the interior mixes traditional log home construction with contemporary updates and fixtures. The resulting space is open and airy, with a decidedly country feel. Between the two structures, connected at the upper level, you have plenty of space for entertaining.
Upstairs, the bedrooms make the most of the beautiful wood timbers and interesting shapes. The exposed stone chimney and multiple fireplaces would add a cozy touch in the cold winter months.
The nature lover in the family will love the outdoor shower with a view!
The screened-in sunroom is the perfect place to relax with a glass of wine and a good book, or a pan full of peas to shell for dinner. Who needs a playlist when you have crickets to entertain you?
Surrounding the house is a 30-acre tract of forested land. Just think about what you could do with all of that! Love hosting family gatherings? Build some log cabin guest houses and connect them with a hiking trail! Have you always wanted to be a homesteader? Plant an orchard and try your hand at canning. There is no shortage of possibilities with this much space.
