From the Zillow listing:


There’s something about historic homes that you never find in modern houses. For some, it’s the wonder that such beauty could have been created in a time before power tools when corbels, columns, and cornices were hand-carved by master craftsmen rather than mass-produced by electronic machines. Others find joy in the materials from which such homes were constructed. To be sure, no contemporary flooring material can match the beauty that comes from a century of patina on old-growth heart pine. Some love the sound of a skeleton key in a 100-year-old brass lockset, while others marvel at the outside world through the lens of wavy and perfectly imperfect window panes. And every owner of a historic home appreciates living in a place steeped in history where, if the walls could talk, the stories would be as endless as they are fascinating. Whatever your reason, you’ll fall in love with 702 South Hayne Street – a historic home with modern amenities conveniently located in Downtown Monroe.
