310 Marine Street

Larger View
    This 1860s era house began life as a small ante-bellum Gulf Coast cottage. In 1897, it was moved back from its original location at the corner of Marine and Savannah, and there was a three-room Victorian addition put on its front and its entrance was moved around to Marine Street. What is now a bathroom at the southern end of the house was once its front porch facing Savannah Street. (We have preserved the only remnanat of the eve of the original front porch above the ceiling of this bathroom. Also, notice, the width of the floor board in the bedroom off this bath. This was the original front room of the house, and as the earliest portion of the house, it has the widest prettiest flooring.)

    Thus, it is a very interesting and unusual combination of styles and confirgurations with a lot of character and charm. As the garden grows, its charm will be even more pronouned.

    It has three bedrooms and two baths, as well as a wonderful kitchen opening onto a nice side back porch. Facing east, the front porch will provide a nice place to gather in the late afternoon and visit with passing neighbors.

    In the last 18 months this block of Marine has begun a remarkable transformation. Recently the snorner store close, and it is hoped that it will be purchased and restored in the near future.

    The house is listed at $165,000.
