Psalm 45:10-11, 13-15

Listen to me, O royal daughter; take heart to what I say. Forget your people and your homeland far away. For your royal husband delights in your beauty; honor him, for he is your lord. [...] The bride, a princess, waits within her chambers, dressed in a gown woven with gold. In her beautiful robes, she is led to the king, accompanied by her bridesmaids. What a joyful, enthusiastic procession as they enter the king's palace!

Isn't this just so quaint!

This property is in Sharon, South Carolina which is about 30 minutes from my parents house. It's so cute...and it's even in a little poe-dunk town. (Only about 400 people live in this town .) It's perfect for goats and chickens and a big garden...not to mention all the cosmetic work that needs to be done on it. The asking price? $49,900.

This land parcel (5 acres) in the center of Sharon has the perfect combination of pasture and woods, it even has a stream on the property that leads to a small pond nearby. Sidewalks, Town center, town playground across the street, historic district, charming community. It is less than a 40 mile commute to Charlotte and York county schools are excellent.

This property also includes a 2 story historic home approx 2400 sq ft., 4 + bedrooms, parlor, living room, formal dining room, kitchen, butler's pantry, 2nd story balcony, front porch, back porch. The home needs TLC to bring it back to it's original glory. We purchased this home to relocate to and restore however, family illness has prevented our move from Florida. We can't continue to pay taxes and insurance on two homes. This home deserves to shine again.

We will be showing this home by appointment only. The home was purchased by us in late 2006 for 55,000 and it is valued by York county $78,200, the land alone is worth our asking price. Email me with your questions, I have more pictures, serious inquiries only since we will be traveling from out of state for showings. Home is being sold as-is.

Here's more info that my dad got when he e-mailed the owners:

It will require a new septic tank or French drain system & appliances to make it
livable and a great deal of cosmetic work. The flooring in the bathroom
needs repair, we replaced the subfloor and beams in the one room that had damage
from a water heater that a prior owner left to leak once he lost the home to
foreclosure. The roof has been repaired and there are no leaks. The
home was built around 1910.

Our original plan was to live in it while we fixed it up. We purchased the home cash from an investor who bought the home while in foreclosure. She basically owned the home for a month prior to our purchase. The home was occupied up until then.

So, are you moving? ;-D Maybe I should ask if the OxFam is moving.

My dream fixer-upper home is in Georgia. It's fun to dream...
