From the Zillow listing:


“Life in a small Southern town.” What could I say more inviting than that? Perhaps, “Wide, wrap-around porch!” This is the one you have been searching for. Built in 1906 by the Seller’s great-grandfather, the house has stayed mostly original. Original heart pine floors. Original wavy glass windows. Original mantles, original hardware and trim, original high wood ceilings…this is what all renovators hope to find. Because the less updating that has been done, the more good features with which to work! The home rests on the front of 3.98 acres and covers a City block from front to back! There is also a guest cottage (square footage not included in total count) with another big porch to enjoy and a detached garage building. The property is graced with beautiful mature trees and a sprawling lawn. This is just the perfect setting for someone who wants to slow down the pace a bit. Now, this Victorian doll will need some updating, but because of the huge rooms, several with bay window walls, 221 Davis Street offers plenty of room for larger bathrooms and closets. There’s even room on the main floor for a master bedroom! Selling AS-IS. Inspections welcome. I bet you’ll find the gorgeous heart pine floors in better shape than most as they’ve been covered with carpet. So come see Bishopville and this wonderful house and cottage. Peel back the carpet, let your children pick out their rooms, and stroll the grounds. You’ll fall in love. Oh! One more inviting quality: “Low taxes!”
