Features include full length screened front porch, high ceilings, original wood floors, modern kitchen & bathrooms, upstairs hall with built-ins & door to balcony, office, back entry/mud room, in-ground pool with diving board & slide (concrete, so no liner - was 1st private in-ground pool in County), and large gazebo. 1st floor bedroom currently used as den. There is also a separate residence/rental unit on property (117) - see Feature Remarks for details. On the back of unit there is stall and storage area for equipment, etc - would be great for goats, chickens, or a small horse. Located just outside of city limits, so taxes are low!
