Sometimes with cordwood homes, it is hard to find good interior photos.  This one has excellent interior photos of the bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen.  The exterior layout is single story with post and beam framed cordwood. 

This home is for sale!  It is a single-family home with 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, 1,471 sq. ft. in Murphy, NC.  

From the realtor “You’ve never seen such a unique, amazing home! This is far from your average “Cabin in the Woods,” yet it is one! Situated on nearly 14 unrestricted acres, this is a rare find! No HOA, you are surrounded by your own property. 

Unique log and mortar home is designed to be low maintenance and is stunning inside! 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, and an office provide a lot of space. The kitchen is open to the living and dining area and the wood-burning stove can keep you perfectly comfortable on cold nights.




The main bedroom also has a wood stove, too! Radiant floor heat keeps you perfectly comfortable. Matching storage shed and an RV/building site. Estate sale being sold as-is. Endless opportunity is here!”

The open concept floor plan with white drywall makes for a bright room.
