walk-in fireplace   bedroom with fireplace

At the turn of the last century, this home was known as The Buttonwoods, after the giant sycamore trees on the property. One of them is on the National Historic Tree Registry. This 5 bedroom historic home sits on 4 acres and not only contains a house, but a gristmill, whose exterior has been restored and interior reinforced. It is in a country setting, but not far from a shopping center with a new supermarket, restaurants, and a coffee shop. On the banks of the Big Elk Creek, which is on the southern edge of this lovely piece of land.

Mill    magnolia

Here you see the Ruston/McDowell Mill, which is said to have ground flour for Washington's army. This magnolia was blooming outside the front door in June, right next to the cherry trees in bloom the month before.
