From the Zillow listing:


Listen closely. Do you hear it? ”What?” The call of FREEDOM! The call of character, charm & relaxation. Liberate yourselves from the Cookie-Cutter Neighborhood & fall in love with a one-of-a-kind hearth & home. Built in 1911 & settled on over 3/4 of an acre, this historic home will give you room to breathe & the ability to do what YOU want. What’s an HOA? Who cares. Bring your boat(s), ATV & RV & start planning your gardens & mini field of corn, okra & squash. Let the kids play outside with the cats, dogs & the llama. Feed the chickens & then grab some sweet tea to sip on the front porch. There is SO much value here: spectacular metal roof, new windows, hardwood floors, new master shower, remodeled kitchen, 30X40 workshop, Cane Bay schools & much more! Right around the corner from Volvo! This home really is the best of both worlds: country living yet quite convenient. Not only is it less than 15 minutes from Volvo, it’s under 30 minutes to Palmetto Commerce Parkway businesses like Boeing, Mercedes & Cummins as well as 30 minutes from the Naval Weapons Station.

Outside of work, you’re only 20 minutes to the Hatchery Boat Landing on Lake Moultrie, 12 minutes to the Cane Bay Publix & shops or 20 minutes to all of the restaurants & stores on North Main Street in Summerville. But, most importantly, it’s only 10 minutes to Dukes BBQ in Ridgeville.

The 30 X 40 workshop is spectacular, has a roll-up garage door, heavy-duty wiring and can fit 4 cars or more inside. There’s also a separate shed/workshop that’s also a 2-car carport.

The back of the home has a fully-fenced backyard that is overlooked by cost-cutting solar panels that are paid for.

Inside, the master bedroom is downstairs and boasts a study/office on the way to the remodeled master bath with a gorgeous, new tiled shower with bench seat & seamless glass shower door.

The large eat-in kitchen was completely redone not too long ago with new cabinetry, soft-close drawers, pull-out pot racks, quartz countertops, tile backsplash & bamboo flooring.

There are 3 full baths to go with 3 bedrooms the bonus room off of the master (which could potentially make a 4th bedroom), spacious utility room & laundry room.

The tall ceilings, crown molding, chair rails & multiple fireplaces add significant character and charm.
