About This 1884 Fixer Upper In Newberry South Carolina
The Boozer- Cannon House is listed on the National Historic Register and was built in 1884 by architect Cam Davis. This Victorian home clearly has elegant “bones,” and is well worth preserving. It’s located in a neighborhood that includes many stately old homes that have been preserved or renovated. Downtown Newberry is just a few blocks away, along with the Newberry Opera House and the Newberry Museum.
The house is situated on a HUGE lot that extends from Caldwell Street to Nance Street. There are 2 outbuildings on the property, and the house itself is 3 stories. Virtually every room in this glorious home has hardwood floors and a fireplace. There are 4-6 bedrooms. (2 are on the main floor and could be put to use as a parlor, den, or office instead.) There’s a formal dining room, plus 2 large parlors at the front of the house. Each room has special architectural details like built-ins, moldings, or fretwork.
On the 3rd floor, there’s a large unfinished attic. Leading the way up all 3 flights of steps is a beautiful window with multicolored panes of glass. This piece of history is being sold AS IS to someone who will restore it. Much of the demolition and prep work for restoration has already been done. There’s all new plumbing and electrical wiring, and a new HVAC system has been purchased and awaits your installation. A clawfoot tub has been installed in each bathroom–just wait until you step down into the master bathroom and see the windows surrounding the elegant tub!
