From the Zillow listing:


Handyman Special/Investors take note…there’s not been many recent opportunities in the Tryon area for a flipper/fixer upper, so don’t let this one get away. LR is spacious and features a wood-burning fireplace and lots of windows for great natural light. Dining room opens to the kitchen & laundry area, (looks like there was previously a laundry area in the basement too). Being sold “Where-Is, As-Is”. Seller hasn’t lived in the house for a while, so the ivy, wisteria & kudzu have really taken over, but once the overgrowth is tackled, you would have lots of useable, private, level space in the back yard to enjoy with endless possibilities. With 1.34+/- acres, this property also offers a possibility to build a guest house! This property is located within the Tryon city limits and has city water, sewer & trash pick-up! Seller had a home inspection done in December 2022 and is willing to share it, so ask you agent to check the Associated Documents or contact the listing agent for a copy.
