It's a fixer-upper for sure, but that just adds to the allure of this incredible historical home in Darlington, SC, being offered for a song. Priced at just $89,900—and featuring the double-decker, wraparound porch of our dreams—it's ripe for the perfect old-house lover (ahem!) to sweep it off of its feet and restore it to its former grandeur.

There's quite a bit surviving inside the 4-bedroom home, which is known as the G. O. Mertz House (Don't you love a house with a formal name?). We spy several mantels, stained glass and an exceptionally pretty staircase. The potential is almost too much to bear!
Here's a bonus: The home is located on 1.5 acres in Darlington's West Broad Street Historic District, which means that it's surrounded by dozens of other Victorian-era homes, many of which were once owned by the city's most prominent and affluent residents. This and a handful of the neighboring homes were constructed by the same master craftsman (Lawrence Reese), so there's a cohesion to the homes that makes this part of Darlington exceptional and unique.
Good bones and beautiful surroundings? That sounds just about heavenly.
