Neighborhood: 304 - Sw Johnson City, Not In Subdivision
Now you can own a piece of American History! This remodeld home known as the Bell-Herrin House, a Pre-Civil War property built in 1837, is nestled in the heart of Johnson City on almost 24 acres with almost 2000 ft of road frontage. And for developers, it is already zoned R-4! Converted into a hospital for wounded soldiers,this amazing home with its 3 trap doors and tunnels promotes the legacy that it was part of the Underground Railroad to assist fleeing slaves. The home has been remodeled over the years but remains true to its heritage with many original doors/windows, fireplace mantels, staircase railings, hardwood floors and brick. Many of these were made on the property and the bullet holes in the original bricks attest to the war in these parts. All 4 BR's are the width of the house, as are the dining room, living room and kitchen. Several rooms offer beautiful original built-ins from floor to ceiling. Recent updates include new heat pumps in 2021 and 2022 and roofs in the last 2-3 years. Other features include: 4 total fireplaces, large updated kitchen and 2 basements - one finished and one unfinished. The property includes a large barn with separate stalls and a fully stocked, spring fed pond as well as a flowing creek from Buffalo Mtn. The timber and fruit trees provide a pristine natural habitat populated by turkey,deer and geese. Located minutes from ETSU, the VA, and Medical Center, this estate could serve as your private retreat, special events venue or as a most unique development. Asking $1,050,000.
