My husband & I are escaping the fast life of the country turned city and relocating anywhere eastern Tennessee. We are looking for an old farmhouse-1800's to early 1900's, with atleast 5 acres, a barn and hopefully, some outbuildings. A creek or brook would be great on the property. A foreclosure property would be fantastic because funds are limited. We want our privacy back and do not mind a half hr drive to town. So, I guess we're looking for that one horse town type feel where people are friendly but understand privacy & respect go hand in hand...too many have forgotten this or just havent been taught & we cant stand it!! So, any suggestions?? My family is from KY, so we arent strangers to this way of living...

If you gave us an idea of what 'limited funds' means to you it would help a lot. Are you wanting to stay within say...75k to 100K? More, less?
Are you dead set on an old farmhouse or are you flexible on that?

There are plenty others. Just hard to pull some out when I don't know the exact area you're looking, the price range, etc. Any other info would be helpful.

There was a great one on like 20 or 25 acres in the Cookeville area for a while. If I were staying in TN I'd have looked at it.
