I sure wasn’t expecting the interior to look like that! So much unpainted woodwork! This home does have a pool. The “7th Sister” was built in 1898. It is located on .78 acres in Clio, South Carolina. The home features a huge wrap around front porch, original hardwood floors, wood walls, wood ceilings, french doors, transom windows, ornate mantels, really spacious kitchen and a sunroom. I would definitely get rid of the track lighting. This is a big house too and all of the woodwork is mahogany. Five bedrooms, four bathrooms and 4,719 square feet. $289,900 New price: $285,000
