From the Zillow listing:

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 & charm. The exterior is cypress siding with an inviting front porch. Back yard is adorned with wisteria, fruit trees & 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, & 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, & a media room. Kitchen was renovated in 2005 while both downstairs baths got there face lifts in 2010. Although it has been lovingly maintained & is vacant now, like every old home, it needs attention. It will need someone special, a visionary to appreciate & revitalize it. Are you up for the challenge, or do you know somebody that is?

What I Love About The Home
Perfectly situated in Downtown Farmerville. Local folks call it the garden district. Property was owned for 80 years by one owner who took excellent care. We had a home inspector out that told us how preserved the home was & what great shape it’s in. Exterior painting will be done in phases! Come take a look at this extraordinary home that could also be a fabulous business location.
