From the Zillow listing:


‘The Spencer House’, Circa 1821, is rich in both history and charm. Sitting atop 1.6 acres & on the highest point in Lee County. The original house was added onto in the 1840’s to create the Greek Revival that still stands strong today. The grand architecture boasts double verandas, 4 square framed pillars & a sunburst window on the upper façade. The grand entrance is flanked by double parlors. The west parlor opens to the formal dining & kitchen beyond. The east parlor is currently used as the main bedroom. The original bedroom is located just beyond the foyer & connects to the family room. Two additional bedrooms, & 2nd full bath, are located on the upper level. If you are looking for more space? There is almost 1000 sq ft of unfinished space upstairs, plus a detached 2 story building with 712 sq ft of heated/cooled space. (Already plumbed). The current owners purchased this home in 2004 and have worked hard to get the structure back to its solid condition. All knob/tube wiring was removed, HVAC was replaced in 2004 & 2009, additional foundation support was added next to the brick & mortar, plus new metal roof installed in 2011. The majority of the work is the obvious cosmetic items, updating of kitchen & baths, and a lot of paint to bring her back to life! Many cherished attributes include 12 foot ceilings, antique heart pine floors and 8 fireplaces (2 working & 5 piped for gas). This house is significant and authentic and ready for its next family!
