From the Zillow listing:
Historic Home in the heart of Farmerville is in desperate need of someone to fill it with love and laughter. Built in 1905, with only one owner for over 80 years is certainly remarkable, don’t ya think? Sitting on over an acre, this home is boasting with character and charm. The exterior is cypress siding with an inviting front porch. Back yard is adorned with wisteria, fruit trees and 2 live oaks, which makes it perfect for alone time or family gatherings. From 12′ ceilings to hardwood floors there are unique attributes in every room. Beautifully colored tile fireplaces in all down stair bedrooms, claw foot tub, 2 laundry hookups, rare cork tiles in the den, custom kitchen cabinetry, and farmhouse sink are just a few of the jaw dropping details of this home. Wait till you see the grand staircase in person. Originally the second floor was mostly attic space, now finished out completely it lends room to 2 large bedrooms, a full bath, and a media room. Kitchen was renovated in 2005 while both downstairs baths got there face lifts in 2010. Although it has been lovingly maintained and is vacant now, like every old home, it needs attention. It will need someone special, a visionary to appreciate and revitalize it. Are you up for the challenge, or do you know somebody that is?
