The Ruff-Cobb House c. 1850

808 Boundary St, Newberry, SC 29108, USA
$149,000

Description

“Dramatic and unique” describes The Ruff Cobb House. Built about 1850, this lovely Greek Revival was remodeled in 1890 which included the addition of elaborate wrought iron including a stunning railing around the new 2nd story front balcony. This home needs restoration, so to be clear, it is being sold AS-IS. The buyer should assume that fireplaces, plumbing, and electrical all need work. There is no HVAC system. But oh, imagine what a joy it would be to live in a home as beautiful as this with all new mechanicals. That could be YOUR life! A wide welcoming front porch from which to watch the world go by; an impressive entrance hallway; soaring ceilings, huge rooms, beautiful hardwood floors showcasing the mars and marks that speak of a thousand footsteps….this is living in history. And the experience could change your life forever. Here’s your opportunity to own a landmark in the heart of one of South Carolina’s favorite small towns. If you love history and culture, you’ve found your home! Newberry, SC is considered one of the United States’ Historic Districts with 35 properties on the National Register including The Newberry Opera House, which is the center of community activity and a performing arts center for world-renowned acts. Wonderful restaurants, shopping, gardens and more can all be found in Newberry and many within walking distance of this home. The Buyers will sign a Rehabilitation Agreement and Conservation Agreement to assure this treasure is preserved.
