From the Zillow listing:


Own a piece of Georgia history –  the Historic Kelley – Bennett House! This Gothic Revival w/ Victorian influences was built in the late 1800’s by Dr. Kelley. In the early 1900’s the Bennett family purchased the home and it has remained in the family since. As you walk through you will be transcended to a different place and time, when kids still played outside until mama called them in for supper. A perfect marriage of past and present w/ modern features including new electrical, plumbing, central HVAC, and gas fireplaces joined by its original character and charm including heavy trim, heart of pine wood floors, solid wood doors, gorgeous mantels, and high ceilings. Glorious view over the antique farmhouse sink of the 24×12 peanut shaped inground pool, smokehouse, greenhouse, raised garden, and goldfish pond. Plenty of space to soak up nature w/ 380 SF of open porch space + 326 SF enclosed porch. Located in the center of town walking distance to Glasscock County Consolidated School!
