404 Cashua Street, Darlington, SC 29532,
This darling South Carolina real estate find is located in Darlington, a small city best known for Darlington Speedway where the annual NASCAR Southern 500 takes place. The town is also known for its multiple historic districts, including the district in which this home is located – the Cashua Street-Spring Street Historic District. Thirty-nine contributing buildings are situated in this residential neighborhood. These intact residences were built between 1890 and 1930 and were once owned by prominent citizens of Darlington. This lovely home is on Cashua Street, where most of the dwellings are large, two-story frame houses. Spring Street has smaller, one-story frame homes. If you Google Map the area, you’ll find buildings with architectural styles including Queen Anne, Bungalow, Victorian and Colonial Revival, most with large landscaped yards and decorative woodwork. Just take a look at Google Maps here, and you’ll fall in love with the neighborhood of streets lined with Spanish moss trees and grand old homes with rocking chair porches.
Built in 1890, #404 Cashua Street is a 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath Colonial Revival with a hipped roof, mostly six-over-six windows, original front door with transom, and a lovely front porch. The porch actually wraps around on one side. As you can see by the photos, the interior boasts multiple fireplace mantels, hardwood floors, built-ins and original doors and trim. While the bathrooms and kitchen appear to be serviceable, I would most certainly redo the kitchen to reflect more the period of the house. Call me crazy, but I adore old, original kitchens. The existing footprint of the kitchen, however, is spacious enough and has plenty of sunlight. This darling South Carolina real estate find has so much going for it. It just needs a family to care for it like it deserves.
