From the Zillow listing:


This is truly a ”Southern Gem”! This impeccably maintained, c1910, Neo-Classical Revival-style two-story home is stunning from first glance. The front entrance welcomes you through the exquisitely beveled and leaded door and sidelights into a grand central hall. Upon entry, you can relax in either of the double parlors on either side of the entry with original double pocket doors and large windows for natural light. The large formal dining has a magnificent Austrian crystal chandelier and is anchored by the extra large bay window. Behind the central hall is the more private areas of the home -the grand master suite with full bath, 2 vanities and walk-in closet with built-in cabinets; a family room with Pecky cypress paneling and built-in bookcases; the kitchen with granite countertops, a large bright sunroom on back and the most storage you’ve ever seen in a utility room. The original heart pine floors set the stage for the high-end architectural details in the mantles, cornices and moldings. Make your way upstairs to a beautiful center hall with 4 large bedrooms, two full baths, a full kitchen and double glass doors to the front balcony. Imagine a bride standing on that balcony throwing her bouquet! Wait, there’s more – a permanent staircase leading to the 3rd floor large stand-up, floored attic. Outside: Massive Corinthian columns, front brick porch with a side screened porch, stand-up crawlspace, mature landscaping, sidewalk to downtown, private back yard, and storage building. This home has been used for the successful Tartan House Bed and Breakfast for the past 20 years. Visitors have enjoyed stepping back in history to stay in one of the period guest rooms, enjoy breakfast in the formal dining room and relax on the porch or in the parlor after a full day exploring the town’s Historic District or visiting Sylvan Heights Bird Park. If you’ve ever thought about living in a part of history, this is it. It’s charming at every turn and move-in ready
