Property Description
The Historic Shelby Foundation is looking for an interested buyer for this great example of a Colonial Revival duplex. The ca. 1927 Peyton McSwain House was occupied on one side by Peyton and Ethel McSwain until the 1950s. It was also occupied by Lynn E. Lentz, Vance Weaver and E.Tyree Greene. The house and garage were both recently relocated due to threat of demolition.

The house is in good shape and features hardwood floors throughoutThe original eight-over-eight window units have aluminum storm windows. The front panel door and back doors are also original as are the two brick chimneys at each gable end and the weatherboard siding. Each unit has a spacious living room, dining room and kitchen on the first floor. On the second floor there are three bedrooms and one bathroom in each unit. The front steps, side and back porches needed to be removed prior to the relocation. It had been fully occupied until then.

The property requires a complete rehabilitation including all new systems of HVAC, plumbing, and electrical. Kitchens and bath rooms are in need of updating. The house has a new brick foundation.

The garage was also constructed around the 1930s. It is a two story building with weatherboard siding. The garage has two main doors with a side entrance and second floor storage area.

The house is located two blocks from uptown Shelby’s many amenities such as shopping, dining, entertainment, tree-lined streets and parks. A small on story house next door is also available for sale and could be rehabbed as a starter home or as a quaint rental home.

 
Additional Notes
Shelby is an attractive historic town of approximately 21,000 situated in the combined foothills of the Blue Ridge and South Mountains and also only an hour away from Charlotte or the Greenville Spartanburg, SC areas.

Shelby is known as “The City of Pleasant Living”.
