The draw to live a more basic lifestyle is significant. Many seek to embrace the past and engage nature in a simpler and healthier way. This lifestyle conversation has become commonplace, and yet, few of the participants wish to totally abandon the conveniences of our society. More and more we try to combine our technology driven world with the pleasures of a lost time. Modern homesteading seeks to combine our work, often in an urban setting, and our private life in a rural environment. Land for animals, gardens, nature in general and a connection to the past is very appealing. Finding that combination is often challenging. That challenge is met at Resource Drive, Cleveland, NC. Forty-three ± acres, two homes, agricultural fields, wooded land, two creeks and a definite connection to the past offers a chance for a modern homestead. The property is suitable for multiple uses with a combination of open fields and woods; plenty of room for crops, gardens, animals, family and friends. The current owners have been good stewards of the property, insuring chemical free agriculture and bringing the past alive. A 150-year-old log cabin built by their great grandparents was disassembled and the logs moved to the current location. Large red and white oaks were felled and dried for two years to provide additional logs for a new cabin to be built. The new logs were hand-hewn on site using methods and tools from the last century. Actual construction of the current log cabin took two years; once the logs were stacked they were given time to settle before the addition of utilities and chinking. Approximately 30% of the home is reclaimed logs and the design is based on the original log home floor plan, with the addition of glass and windows to bring natural light into the home. Unique touches were included to add to the history of this special home. The downstairs flooring (tongue and groove over sub flooring) is reclaimed heart of pine from an old cotton mill and kitchen cabinets are 150-year-old heart of pine made from the flooring of the original cabin. Several additions give this home its own exclusive personality, the most unique touches are stones that were used in the foundation, fireplaces and the front steps, gathered from very special places; from an old home, pieces of the Berlin wall and a chunk of Abby Road. Today, this wonderful home is 2,005 sf with two bedrooms, one with a fireplace, vaulted 2-story great room, lots of natural light, den with fireplace, kitchen with breakfast area, dining room, 2nd level loft and a large deck connecting to a covered porch. Surrounded by mature hardwoods and landscaping, it definitely soothes the soul. The second home, apart and private from the log cabin sits among a hardwood grove that excites memories of Robert Frost. This charming 1,628 sf home has a garage, rocking chair front porch and two decks. With a single level floor plan the home is readily and easily accessible. It features a master suite and a guest bedroom, vaulted ceiling great room, kitchen and dining space. Come enjoy your modern homestead in an established home, just waiting for your personal touch.
