NHR: Franklin-Penland House & 1907 Linville Falls P.O.

Beautifully Restored and on the National Historic Registry, the Franklin-Penland House &1907 Linville Falls Post Office, is Officially On the Market! Located across the road from the Linville Gorge Wilderness Area, less than a mile from Linville Falls' waterfalls & trails, and close to the stunning Blue Ridge Parkway, this property would lend itself to an exquisite estate or Bed & Breakfast! The main house was built in 1883 by Theodore Franklin, and purchased by Stokes Penland to serve as an mountain inn from the early 1900s to the 1960s. It includes 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms & ample space to finish two additional suites off the back balconies. Cooks will love the huge gourmet kitchen with granite countertops, new stainless steel appliances, and original floors. Formal dining and living rooms with fireplaces offer cozy spaces for entertaining. There is a lovely fenced in courtyard encompassing the heart of the farmhouse. The original 1907 Linville Falls Post Office has been converted into a private guest cottage. Imagine your uses for the detached 2-bay garage with workshop and spacious loft, as well as a window-lined office/studio wing. So much heart and hard work has gone into restoring this beauty! You will truly fall in love with this piece of Appalachian history. Ask Samantha Benfield, listing agent, for extensive renovation list. Seller is a licensed NC Realtor.
