Realtor Blurb:

Wonderful home located in downtown East Bend! Small town, quiet living only 20 minutes from Winston Salem. 5000+sqft loaded with charm and features of a home built around the turn of the century! Gorgeous wood floors thru most of the house, tile floor in the kitchen and baths. 10 fireplaces! Office on main level could be used as bedroom. Listen to the rain with a tin roof! Amazing wrap around porch. Must see the pictures and make an appointment for your own showing!

My Notes: ALL UNPAINTED ORIGINAL INTERIOR WOODWORK. If  you know and love historic Victorian houses, you know why I'm shouting. It seems that it's a knee-jerk reaction for *someone* through the years to have whitewashed the life out of such woodwork in any house it's available. There's varying degrees of agreement about how - or if - it's worth stripping the paint off when such has been done, so to find a house without it is a minor miracle. This house was for sale in either '07 or '08, but sold quickly. It's really well preserved.
