I like the original features! This home was built in the 1930’s. It is located on 1.41 acres in Tignall, Georgia. There is a nice front porch with the original front door and original side windows. The door even has the original hand cranked doorbell. There is a huge hallway that is nine feet wide and 26 feet long. There are original hardwood floors and pocket doors. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,402 square feet. $102,500

From the Zillow listing:


Built around 1930, this huge country home has historical charm to spare.   Enter through the deep front porch and original front door, complete with wavy glass surrounds, dental molding and an antique hand-crank doorbell.  The unique front hallway is nine feet wide and 26 feet long, perfect for letting the breeze flow through the home.  The formal living room and dining area are separated by original pocket doors.  A small bedroom sits just off the living area and would make a perfect home office. The living and dining rooms each have their own fireplace with wood burning inserts and an original subway tile surround.   Ten-foot ceilings, wainscoting, crown molding, floor-to-ceiling sash windows with original pullies and weights, and solid wood six-pane doors with intact antique hardware are just waiting for you to bring them back to their original glory.  Through the swinging door, you’ll find a huge eat-in country kitchen with three large pantry closets and views of the side and back yards. A sliding glass door allows access to the perfect grilling porch and small fenced area for animals. An additional informal dining area is located off the kitchen, with an ample laundry room adjacent.  There are two more large bedrooms, each with multiple closets, fireplaces and en suite baths. An enormous attic space offers many options for storage, expansion or renovation.  This historical diamond-in-the-rough is topped off by a serene, gently sloping piece of land featuring mature pecan and magnolia trees, and a rare Japanese maple.  Surrounding horse farms, a storage shed and 100+-year-old barn complete the rustic, secluded country feel.
