    Wish the photos were better for this. If you didn’t notice, it has my name written all over it!

      Merry Christmas, Kelly. Thank you for providing so much viewing pleasure, particularly while I recovered from surgery. This farm house is so sweet.

      What a nice looking older house,inside and out with the other buildings and the peaceful farmland views. Not to mention the fact that the area was possibly home to Civil War camps and battles. Wonder about Internet and cable TV service around there. I live in Brazoria County,Texas in a small one bedroom apartment and dream of getting to buy an older house like that to live in for how ever many years I have left,I’m 52. Is it still on the market? My rent is $762 a month.

    I’m recovering from surgery at the moment and am 100% wheel chair bound for another month or so. I’ve spent hours upon end on this website touring old homes all over America 🙂 Thank you so much for this site!!!!

    It’s a very cute little farm, with it’s little outbuildings. The kitchen cabinets are really nice too.
    However; it has a nasty factory farm just a stone throw away (bad karma) and sit’s on a tiny lot. So it’s a pass for me…sorry.

      Factory farm? All I’m finding are chicken houses…?

      • Marion says: 67 comments

        A massive poultry factory farm with what I can see four massive barns full of death and misery. I am sorry but I couldn’t live near that!

          Then that rules out most of the rural south.

            Well there seems to be a lot of those buildings around there. Up in Mendocino, Humboldt and Lake Counties — where I lived many years — you see those kind of buildings, they are full of pot. It’s called the Green Triangle for a reason.

            And a very Merry Christmas Ms. Kelly, your Site sure have brought a lot of happiness my way over the past year.

              They are just chicken houses. I’ve been around them all my life. Heck, I even worked in the office of a processing plant when I was super young (calling owners to schedule when the trucks would be there for pickups and when to “raise the feeders”.) My husband even worked in them when he was a teenager. They are stinky and viciously hot when the air isn’t going through but they are just chicken houses. I’d much rather live next to one of those than a new subdivision or in a city. Not that there’s one next door to this, the ones I see in the aerial view are not next door or anything like that.

              Merry Christmas. 🙂

                Happy New Year Kelly.
                You make my favorite Website.
                (admin edit: You’re welcome! But going to leave that part out of your comment.) When I was young i worked on a family dairy farm. When others roll their windows up out in the country I’m rolling mine down and breathing it all in.

                Oh my gosh, we live in NE TX and it is chicken house central for several major producers. I too worked for one of them. If you eat chicken from the store this is how they are produced. The old ways of families raising our meat products could not keep up with demand, the company and contract farms had to be erected to keep up with the growing population. This house looks like it it located in a wonderful part of the country!

    Those cabinets!

    I bet there have been lots of fabulous meals made in that kitchen. Love the shiplap.

    Cute little house with nice barn and sheds. Great trees too!

    Looks unfinished inside – needs some sheetrock. 🙂

      Sheetrock?!!!! SHHHHH, you’ll hurt the beadboards feelings you talking like that! 🙂

      • Diane says: 561 comments

        I was just going to say, I was amazed and happy the original wall and ceiling boards have survived without someone covering. Are the fireplaces new electric ones? We farm people are glad when a city person doesn’t buy property next to farms if they feel strongly about how farming works.

    Love this place! And oh that barn! I would use it as my workshop as I restorer old homes.

  11. KIMKIM says: 69 comments

    LOL, I agree about hurting the beadboards feelings! And, I DID see your name all over it, Kelly! Have a great holiday “Country Dreaming”. 😉

  12. Wanda in NC says: 59 comments

    My mother is from Anson County and I still have a few relatives down there. It has been a desperately poor area as long as I can remember, and that’s why you see chicken houses. Back out on the aerial view and you’ll see them scattered all around. There aren’t a lot of ways to make money there.

  13. Sapphy says: 376 comments

    I am in love with that row of cabinets… the one that looks like an old Hoosier! I wonder if that’s built-in?

  14. LUCINDA HOWARD says: 248 comments

    Kelly, I love the walls. The house on Kelly Mill Rd has walls just like these and 12ft ceilings. I hope no one covers these, and the kitchen is adorable. Merry Christmas and thank you so much for this wonderful site. I have learned so much and still learning, of course.

    So many things to love!

    Beadboard everywhere! Fantastic kitchen cabinets! Garage/storage house right out of a black & white movie! Kelly, this place will have to share your name with mine!!

  17. Melody says: 502 comments

    The closest set of barns is 3/4 of a mile to the north, with extensive woodlots in between. Any country folk would know that that is plenty far enough away to not be a bother. We have a large pig farm just down the road, and only a handful of times a year can we actually smell it, and then it’s only enough that you’re aware of its presence.
    If you can’t deal with the farming lifestyle, go live in a city.

    I am itching to search through all those kitchen cupboards! Best feature of the place!!

  18. Joy Louters says: 111 comments

    John, I couldn’t and wouldn’t live near either of those. I do understand what Marion is saying and sympathize with her feelings. It is not an issue for us because I could never live in the south anyway, I hate the heat.

    I know that farming is essential for the economy in many areas, however, it could be done more humanely which has been proven over and over again. That also goes for slaughterhouses which are amongst the worst anywhere as far as being humane. I know this is off the subject but farmers also need to understand that there are many, many people who love all animals and simply cannot stand to see them hurt or in pain. That is something they need not apologize for.

    • Melody says: 502 comments

      I invite you to come tour the farms around here. Visit the neighbourhood abattoir, see how spotlessly clean it is, how well the animals are treated.

      Yes, there are farms, and farming practices, that are repulsive. There always will be. But responsible and caring farmers want nothing to do with that filth. Please don’t paint us all with that same judgmental brush.

      Oh, and farming is not simply essential to the economy in ‘many’ areas. If not for farmers, the whole world would starve to death. Farmers feed cities. What did you eat for breakfast? Lunch? Dinner? Where did that bottle of wine come from?

    What an interesting set of pantry cabinets! I’ve never seen that before! Kelly, I’d have to say your site probably has thousands of more fans than you think that look forward to the new postings every day! Merry Christmas and thank you!

  20. Augman says: 42 comments

    Some folks have raised serious issues regarding the high concentration of pig and chicken farms in some areas of NC and other states like Iowa, too. There is plenty of data online for anyone interested that address both sides of each story. But the sad truth is, whether it’s agricultural, mining, military, or industrial, there are very few areas of the country where you will not find some sort of pollution. Even in areas that appear to be natural and pristine there may be some unpleasant surprises, so it’s always wise to thoroughly research any area where you are thinking of purchasing a property!

    I know a lot of people like the kitchen cabinets in this one, but they look like morgue drawers to me!

  22. JennyW says: 4 comments

    My husband and I rode an hour and a half today to see the house and it was well worth the ride! I am in love and am hoping all works out and we can own that little slice of heaven! It’s like someone got into my head and pulled it out!

  23. JennyW says: 4 comments

    Will do!! Y’all keep your fingers crossed for us! That place is so quiet and peaceful…..great place to retire!

  24. SuiteKim says: 69 comments

    Good Luck Jenny! How exciting, fingers crossed for you.

    Just as a point of interest, first thing I saw on the National Weather Service page this morning was that there was a tornado yesterday in Union County, which is the county to the west of Anson. In fact it’s thundering right now at my house. This is very strange weather for the Christmas season.

    JennyW, did you happen to take any more photos of the place? I’d love to see them!

  26. Janet says: 4 comments

    John, I would love to duplicate that cabin in my house but it would probably cost way too much $$$$. I fell straight smack dab in love,

  27. JennyW says: 4 comments

    Thanks for the well wishes everyone! Wanda, I was kicking myself when we left! I was so enamoured by this place, I didn’t think to take pictures! I can tell you that the house looks just like the pictures and it, for me, is a dream come true?

    wouldn’t change a thing. Good old country home just like my dad grew up in in the 1920’s and 30’s in the Ozarks. Nice and comfortable. I would raise some beautiful animals and a short crop on a place like that and feel right at home.
