The $89,900 House That is Blowing Up the Internet

by Elizabeth Finkelstein

 
I have a message for all the budding artists and old house professionals out there: You CAN make a living doing what you’re passionate about, while at the same time doing GOOD FOR THE PLANET. I’ve always been a complete old house fanatic, but never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that I would be in a position to share beautiful fixer-uppers badly in need of saving with the entire world. And to see them wind up in the hands of people whose only motive is to love and restore them? Well, I couldn’t ask for more.
 
If you haven’t yet seen my latest for Country Living Magazine, head on over there to join the more than 37,000 people who have shared this incredible South Carolina home, on the market for just $89,900 and located within a beautiful historic district in the city of Darlington. The piece was also picked up in numerous other publications, including Cosmopolitan and House Beautiful. According to the realtor, the phones have been ringing off the hook. Time to get this beauty SAVED!
 
I’ve included a few photos below just as a tease—You’ll get the complete package over at Country Living.

Special thanks to Coldwell Banker McMillan and Associates for allowing me to write about this gorgeous home!
