Although the owner apparently loves the color red, this circa 1917 bungalow just needs some updating and won’t put your budget in the red. It’s located on 1/2 acre in the town of Smithland (pop. 224), a suburb of Sioux City. Smithland is one of the oldest settlements in Woodbury Co. and, despite its close distance to the city, is in a rural area.

The brick residence has a newer red metal roof, five bedrooms, two baths and some of the most amazing southern yellow pine built-ins you’ll ever see for a country house this size. Just take a look at the photos, and you’ll see what I mean. The crummy¬†paneling in the kitchen has got to go, but check out that original cupboard. I like the nice size landing on the second floor, and the doors are beautiful!
