From the Zillow listing:


Updated historical home- sporting a fresh coat of sunshine and offering a Covered Front Porch with a bench swing to enjoy, a Fenced Back Yard to keep your pets safe, Nicely-sized Rooms all on one level, and a Convenient Location close to all amenities. Bought as a foreclosure and lovingly restored, this classic 1920 home has kept all its wonderful architectural style features, but has been improved to reflect modern times- complete window replacement with lifetime-warranty easy-clean thermopane windows (27 of them!), a new central HVAC in 2010, updated bath, new attic insulation, refinished hardwood floors, bead board wainscoting thru-out, vinyl flooring in kitchen & hallway, ceramic tile in the guest bath, vapor barrier under the house, sheet rock over plaster in the LR, attractive solid surface counters in the Kitchen, even all new receptacles (plugs) thru-out. One of your favorite improvements will be the large Back Deck – you’ll love how private it is for relaxing, grilling, entertaining- and it’s been freshly sealed- looks like new! Enjoy the shady back yard too, fully fenced, with just enough dappled sunlight to keep the yard green. Your first home project will be to decide whether you like the hardwood floors’ natural look or if you want to add a shiny gloss coat; the trimming around the baseboards has been removed to make that easier. Big Eat-in Kitchen lets the group hang out without getting in the Chef’s way. Vaulted ceiling with track lighting is a nice feature; so is easy access to the Back Deck for grilling. Spacious LR is 14×22, and the go-between room could work equally well as a Formal DR or a Den/Family Room. Suit this home to your needs! Technically a two-bedroom home, there is a bright, cheery room off the LR that served well as a third bedroom for guests, but you could also use it as a dedicated office or craft room- it has two walls of windows, and a full wall of custom, built-in cabinetry. In fact, storage thru-out the house is impressive. Master has a private bath & two closets; Bedroom 2 has a cedar-lined closet to keep all your clothes smelling fresh, and, there’s a Walk-in Closet in the bedroom hallway. Kitchen has a giant Walk-in Pantry AND a convenient Butler’s Pantry with a built-in desk, & a pretty cabinet w/ glass display doors & more storage. Even the Laundry Room/Mud Room is roomy with lots of built-in shelving. All Kitchen appliances convey, including Frigidaire smooth-top stove, dishwasher, & side-by-side front server fridge. Built-in microwave. Washer/dryer can convey. Home is being Sold-As-Is w/ right to inspect; but Buy with Confidence – Seller is offering a 1-year Home Warranty! Absolutely fabulous location for someone associated with Lander University or Uptown Greenwood. It’s a quick zip to Self Regional hospital, a quick zip to the commercial bypasses, & close to all shopping and services. Side street so easy to pull-in or out. Welcome Home!
