Old But Still Working

By
Real Estate Agent with Vision Quest Realty WV0026375

This post is for Dick Greenberg's 2017 Active Rain Photography Contest. The below photo is for the Real Life Category, Sub-Category Miscellaneous Photo.

 

a log cabin with 2 old stoves, still working

 

This photo was taken in a log cabin I have listed.  I remember my mother cooking on a stove just like the white one in the photo.  Both of these stoves are antiques and yes are still working great.

 

The cabin is located on my latest listing, Private Country Estate on 89+ acres and three houses. The Rustic Cabin was built in 1929 and renovated in 2014…..a hunter’s paradise. You see bear, deer, wild turkey, and other wildlife on this property. The cabin has an open floor plan surrounded by large windows and a wrap around deck, and an outdoor fireplace, grills, hot and cold running water outside and a full basemet. The owners of this property do their canning and wine making at the cabin. As well as a hunting lodge.

Thanks Jeff Dowler - it is indeed a special property.

Myrl Jeffcoat - when I walked into the cabin and saw that white stove, memories of my Mom flowed!

Thank you, Amanda S. Davidson, I really enjoyed writing about this property.

 Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 - yes, it is very unique.

Sandy Padula and Norm Padula, JD, GRI NMLS#1483386 - I know the owners stay in the cabin when canning and making wine. Will have to ask if they make apple pies, I bet they do!

Thank you Susan Haughton and Joan Cox for your comments. They don't make appliances like they use to back then. 

William Feela - we had one in the basement where Mom would be cooking while washing clothes.  

Sheila Anderson - so do I.

REbecca,

 Good entry into the contest and wow they still work! My mom had a yellow stove and oven it was GE that is all I remember they would not be considered antique just old.

It doesn't get much more rustic than that. Best of luck marketing this unique log cabin with 89+ acres.

Looks like a place to do an old fashioned wood fired pizza.

A blast from the past for sure. We had a stove that was electric that looked a lot like the one on the left.

 Hi Rebecca, what a great listing to have. I've seen a few of those stoves in antique shops but never a working one.

Hi Rebecca - Nice photo. We still see a lot of the old cast iron ones in mountain properties, and they're all still working. Thanks for another contest entry!
