From the Zillow listing:


“Old world charm” at its best. This 50’s era home has a shaded treed yard, just over 1/2 an acre of land. Cape Cod homes rarely have decorative features; rather than appearance, these homes and porches were designed for practical reasons. These homes have massive central chimneys to keep the occupants warm during the cold winters of the Mountains. You will be surprised at the spacious interior of this charmer. It has a large kitchen with space for a dining area. The great room has parquet wood floors. It will charm you from the front door and the foyer with a direct view of the brick fireplace and the all-wood staircase. A primary bedroom is on the main level, with another bedroom/den/nursery and a full bathroom. Follow the staircase up these classic stairs with charmingĀ  “50’s era” wallpaper to the next level, where you will find four spacious bedrooms and a bathroom, only half, but may have theĀ space to place a tub or shower. It is conveniently located within Jefferson, from shopping, dining, and local cuisine to the Blue Ridge Parkway and many year-round outdoor activities like hiking and biking, the New River for canoeing, river tubing, and fishing, to name a few things to do. Want to run or have your own business? It will be a great location. Bring this “old world charmer” back to its’ original charm. The home needs some work. This is reflected in the price. FHA (203K) loan may be available for qualified buyers. This is an Estate and sold “as is.”
