From the Zillow listing:


Own a piece of history in the Southgate/Lake Hollingsworth area. Beautiful 1920 two-story home with refinished original wood floors and a gorgeous staircase. The home has been re-leveled, re-plumbed, and re-wired. The kitchen was enlarged, has wooden cabinets, solid surface counters, and brand-new Frigidaire stainless appliances. The master is on the first floor and has an en-suite bath. The second floor has an additional 3 bedrooms and a second full bath, plus an open loft area. The first floor has an additional bonus room/office with a half bath. The barn door on that bath was salvaged from a Kathleen Historical society barn. There are two A/C units and two hot water heaters. The front porch includes a swing and a view of the neighborhood park. This historic gem was originally located on South Florida Avenue in Dixieland, and was moved for the mini-mall to be built. If these walls could talk – what an adventure!
