Fixer upper alert! $79,900! Circa 1920 in South Carolina.

April 8, 2019

Definitely a fixer upper. Needs some serious updating and paneling remediation. It did just have a $15,000 price reduction. This home was built in 1920. It is located on .38 acres in Holly Hill, South Carolina. I love how they state that the neighbors are very quiet since it is next door to a cemetery. 🙂 Situated within walking distance to shopping, restaurants, and the public library. Only 21 miles to Volvo and 50 miles to Charleston, South Carolina. Four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 3,082 square feet. $79,900

What I love about this home
There are so many possibilities with this property… a long-term duplex rental or a tri-plex for short-term stays… a bed and breakfast… rental on top and a business (coffee shop, law firm, salon, bail bonds, bookstore…) on the bottom, or one an incredible single-family home!

This property has the MOST quiet neighbors, as it sits beside Holly Hill’s cemetery. The town itself is quaint with a weekly farmer’s market and the quintessential small town main street.
