Being presented for the first time on the market, this quaint cottage boasts a storied past and offers an exceptional opportunity. As the original home of the late Billy Graham and his wife, the late Ruth, history is evident throughout. The family purchased the home in the 1940s and resided here during Graham's monumental movements, including The Los Angeles Crusade. While still under the ownership of Graham's daughter Ruth, the residence has served as a vacation rental and invites guests to experience the life and legacy of the famous evangelist. Comprised of four bedrooms and two baths within two levels of living space, the cottage exudes warmth and comfort while maintaining its historic appeal. Just down the road awaits the vibrant village of Montreat, infused with breathtaking beauty and ample amenities for outdoor recreation. This hidden gem is a chance to own a piece of history. No drive-bys, please. Showings being scheduled between 7/19-22. ALL OFFERS TO BE REVIEWED ON 7/23.
