From the Zillow listing:


This well cared for historic home is nestled on a large half-acre corner lot in Downtown Walterboro. The home received the William Lowndes Award for the Renovation of a Historic Building from the Colleton County Historical and Preservation Society. A charming picket fence greets you as you arrive. You’ll notice great curb-appeal, with beautiful trees that bloom in the Spring and Fall, as well as new landscaping. The large driveway gives you plenty of space for parking. The HVAC was newly installed in 2020! The large Southern-style front porch welcomes you home and is a great place to enjoy your morning coffee, afternoon sweet tea, or evening glass of wine. As you enter, you’re greeted by gleaming hardwood floors, tall ceilings, crown molding, fresh paint throughout, and a spacious floor plan, with abundant natural light and a great flow for entertaining and everyday living. The ceilings were dropped to 9-ft during previous renovation. New owners could easily open this back up to the original taller ceilings, if preferred. The home also offers plenty of storage space in the original cedar-wrapped closets. The formal dining room, with French doors, will be perfect for dinners with family and friends (French doors are not currently in place, but can be re-hung for buyers if they prefer). The kitchen boasts stainless steel appliances, ample cabinet and counter space, and a breakfast/casual dining area. Refrigerator to convey, with an acceptable offer and as part of the sales contract. The large interior room, with built-in shelving, would make an excellent work space, sitting room, or living area. The spacious master bedroom features attic access, a convenient built-in ironing board, and a private half bathroom. The rest of the bedrooms are also spacious in size. The elegant hall bathroom features a luxurious clawfoot tub and a separate shower. The large updated laundry room/mud room makes doing the laundry a breeze! The home also features a new back door. The huge privacy-fenced backyard, with children’s play set, will be perfect for grilling out, entertaining, throwing a football, or watching the kids and pets play. You’ll also find double gates so you can pull vehicle into the backyard. Conveniently located within walking distance to Downtown Walterboro’s shops and restaurants. It’s also close to schools and the city park. Come see your new home, today!
