This has a lot of potential! Would love to explore the log structure on the property. The Snelgove Farmhouse was built in 1890. It is located on 2.75 acres in Gilbert, South Carolina. The home feautres original hardwood floors, wide baseboards, bead board wainscoting, bead board ceilings, and wood walls. I would definitely try to get rid of the drop ceilings they added in some rooms. There is a large screened in porch on the back of the home. The home was built by heart pine wood cut and milled from trees on the property. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,888 square feet. $239,500
