It's all about the simple life at this week's dream home, a classic Appalachian A-frame bungalow. Located in the region that inspired The Waltons, this real estate listing is within walking distance of the Walton Mountain Museum and Ike's Store. The house itself is a perfect mountain getaway. With three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a powder room on just over half an acre, it's basically a blank slate. With the money you'll save on the mortgage—the list price is only $99,500—you can renovate the home to your heart's content.
The main floor features a formal living room, spacious kitchen, and a separate dining room for your family gatherings.
The cozy bedrooms have rustic wood floors, except for the loft-style upper-level room. Built-in shelves and nooks add interest to the dramatic space.
If a relaxing bubble bath is right up your alley, you'll love the claw-foot tub. Don't worry—there's a shower in the other bathroom!
One of the best features of the house is its large front porch. In these parts, passing some time to just "sit a spell" in a rocking chair is a great way to spend the day. Whether you're shelling peas or just watching the leaves fall, this will be one of your favorite spots on the property.
Your visitors will marvel at the fact that you're within walking distance to the Walton Mountain Museum, inspired by the series creator, Earl Hamner.
Hamner's own childhood home is within a stone's throw of the house as well! Just imagine—you can take your evening stroll to Ike's store and enjoy the same views that John-Boy would have! Sure, The Waltons episodes were filmed in California, but THIS is the real Walton Mountain region that inspired the show.
