From the Zillow listing:


**AS-IS SALE, HOME IS IN NEED OF FULL RENOVATION** An 1895 charmer in the heart of the small town of Starr, formerly known as Twiggs. Once a bustling hub of activity as a stop along the Charleston and Western Carolina Railway, the town was officially chartered in 1888 and its name changed to Starr in honor of railroad official Captain W.W. Starr. This late 19th century home is believed to only have had about 4-5 owners through its lifetime, and its spacious ~2,400 sq ft boasts loads of original unpainted woodwork, beautiful hardwood floors, and original wood lap siding on the exterior that could be restored (remaining pink siding is a fiberglass product, not asbestos). Nestled in a quiet country setting facing the original Main Street, you can sit on your front porch and look out at the pasture while also being within walking distance to a produce stand, local restaurant, and the Starr walking track and playground. Property has the possibility for commercial use with road frontage on HWY 81S. A large portion of the demo and cleanup has already been completed. The house includes 3 beds and plumbing for one bath, plus a small study upstairs that would make a great second bathroom. Downstairs you will find a large foyer/entry and an additional large room that could be a 4th bedroom/study as well. Lots of closets for an older home, plus a spacious laundry/mudroom that leads to your backyard. Did we mention there’s potential for a third floor if you made use of the huge attic space with dormer windows? The possibilities are endless with this one. Back yard includes mature landscaping with a large variety of flowers, large oak trees, a well, and a 2 car detached garage with workbenches and storage. Lot is approximately .58 acres. Seller requests that all interested buyers submit their highest and best terms offers no later than 6:00 PM EST on Saturday, April 2nd, 2022.
