Default Anyone want to move to Laurens?

Can't believe my old home is on the market and for that low an amount. Location, location, location I guess.

http://www.realtor.com/realestateand...0_M59017-23770




This Art Deco Style Home is one of a kind and completely gorgeous inside and out. This home's floorplan was featured in the 1933 Chicago World's Fair and stands proudly as one of the most unique homes on the Historic Main Street of Laurens. Arriving home from the back of the house you will enter the courtyard and swimming pool area. Through the iron gate flush with muscadine vines providing a feeling of home uncomparable to others, you do not want to miss this experience. The main living area is approximately 3200 sf and has been tastefully updated. The main level has an optional master suite, sunroom and laundry room along with all the formal rooms. Pay close attention to the details such as the highly stylized doors, rounded corners, hardwoods, sunken living room and much more. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms and the master features a large master closet and full bath all in line with the Art Deco style that is so unique. Additionally, there is a partially finished basement that is terrific space for recreation, storage or hobbies. The pool was recently serviced and it is surrounded by beautiful landscaping and meticulously maintained concrete work. Additional storage can be found in the 3 car garage with an attached workshop for the tinkerers in your life. You really do need to make an appointment to appreciate this home! Loads of features and room at a terrific price...

Used to cruise the square some back in the day. Also caught a couple movies at The Oaks theater. Been torn down long ago. Textiles and the glass plant leaving really killed that town.

And $235,000 is not a "low amount" for a lot of people...especially in this current economy. Just sayin'.

In terms of realty it is.... When I lived up in RI, my parent's house at the time was valued at about $650,000......down in SC a house like that would have been around $235,000, could have a house three times the size of the one in RI here for the price it was worth at the time.

That flood zone is along the Reedy River on the north side of town. Idiots built strip centers along that. The house is on a hill on the west side, no where near any flooding.

Laurens was a great place for a kid to grow up in the 50s-60s. It wa safe. The community watched out for each other. There was money in town too. I remember when there were four drug stores on the square. We would make the week end drags from the Hub to Pete's to the Carolina endlessly. We would drive to Greenwood to drink at Starne's and hit on Lander LIllies or to Greenville to a kiddie club called Jamarta. Borrow a draft card to get into the Summer House, which was a club where the Pedlar Steakhouse is today.

Thomas Wolfe was right though. You can't go home again. I have only driven through town once since my sister and I sold that house 7 years ago. It seems so drab and lifeless now. It is like this old song. After seeing Paree, Orlando, and countless places large and small around the globe I just could live that bucolic again.

I won a trophy there once. It was 1966 and in my new MG-B. Obviously I was the only car in that class so I just had to coast down the strip.

When the two mills closed,the glass plant,and then torrington things really started slowing down with the economy. Then when wal-mart came to town most of what was left retail wise closed their doors.

I grew up in Laurens and spent many happy hours at Yancey's house. His little sister was my best friend. But he is right, it is sad to drive through town now. Seems like so much that was quaint has been replaced with tacky except for West Main Street, where Yancey's house is. The end of the textile mills and glass plant killed the town- like so many others.
