PRICE REDUCED! On a shoulder of Fox Mountain just outside Free Union lies “Turkey Cove”. On the site of an abandoned cabin was reconstructed an 1844 Appalachian Overhang Loft Barn found in Brandywine West Virginia. Hand-hewn heart pine logs were reassembled with stacked stone foundation, walls and fireplace to which was added a post-and-beam kitchen with vaulted ceiling and all capped with a copper roof. The original hinges and other hardware was saved to hone the composition of this remarkable living art. The cabin has been featured in “Mid-Atlantic Country (Jan/Feb 1997) and “Early American Country Homes” (2011). The property is surrounded by 2,400 acres protected by conservation easement. Privacy is complete with long, walking trails.
