The original house was built in the first half of the 19th century as a wooden hall and parlor farmhouse set on granite stones. At the beginning of the 20th century, the house was enlarged by the Barger family who owned several sawmills in the area. The Bargers added a large wrap-around porch, along with a bay window, internal fireplaces and a kitchen.
The farm and house were rented to local farmers for many years until the LaCasse family purchased the property in 1974. Since that time, they have worked carefully to restore the property and added another bedroom and bathroom, making it a four bedroom, two bath home. The house retains many of its original features including the staircase, all six mantles, wall boards, pine floors and functioning wooden windows. Along with so much of the original character, the LaCasse family added modern conveniences such as dual fuel heating and a Wolf gas range fit for any chef. Ground mounted solar panels were installed for maximum sun exposure, reducing utility bills, while maintaining the natural woodland view. With the updated insulation, plumbing and wiring, this home is ready to occupy.
The farm now has thirty acres of mature mixed woodlands, fifteen acres of hay fields, a stream and a home site with a double garage, workshops and a garden. All of this is protected from future development with a conservation easement. The house is on the study list for the National Register of Historic Places and sits on the North Carolina Scenic Byway.
