Realtor Blurb:
It doesn't get any more Southern than this. Majestic magnolia trees, 11 ft. ceilings, 9 fireplaces, intricate wood working, beautiful floors. a broad, long foyer welcomes you. The left wing has a parlor w. adjoining sunroom, a full sized wet bar, a family room, & a bedroom & full bathroom w. handicap shower. The right wing has a second parlor, the dining room, a second full bath, a cozy study/bedroom leading to a large screened porch overlooking the lush back yard. The kitchen opens to a breakfast area with fireplace and built-in china cabinet. Breezes flow throughout the house due to the location of the porches and the foyer. Upstairs has 3 bedrooms and two full baths. do you want to live in an authentic friendly Southern community soaked in history with two charming downtowns, an art center, 192 bed hospital, two hours from 2 major cities in a carefully maintained Circa 1892 home with 5,620 sq. ft.? How about a front porch for rocking & calling out hello's to neighbors strolling by & a screened back porch for lazy afternoons & evening entertaining? If the answer is yes, well, this is your home.

My Notes: Lovely huge front hall; staircase; flooring; doors; mantles - it's all here. The pictures are a little washed out so it's hard to see some of the detail; but it's there. I think this house has been for sale for a while, but I'm having a hard time finding the history. It is right next door to the E.L.Evans house (here) which was for sale a couple years ago. REALLY small lot; but lovely street.
