I bought this three acre place in Efland, NC in 2013 from the Baird Family. David and Eugenia Baird lived here for thirty five years or so, well into their 90’s. Mr. Baird built a wooden 4 bay garage with a tin roof on the property which was a big selling point for me!
The other thing that made me fall in love with the place was the sweet meandering creek that runs through the property and feeds into the Eno River just down the road. This is an idyllic setting for making art!
Since moving in I have added a little store into one of the garage bays, built an additional storage building for all of my cool finds, and added a “WC”, a mini bathroom made of reclaimed materials.
I did stay at the land initially, but the mobile home left behind by the Bairds contained mold, and I had it hauled off. I’m in the process of building a tiny house in it’s place, all out of reclaimed wood.
I participated in the Orange County Studio Tour in 2015, and I plan to have other events there in the future.
My grand vision for the property includes having a creek walk and other trails for visitors, and art installations throughout the property, along with more art shows and possibly music events as well.
For shopping, I have folk art, furniture and decor pieces, and architectural salvage for sale. Some of the items on hand include old doors, windows, shutters, a mantle piece, bead board, barn wood, antique TV cabinets, and more.
