Address: 902 N. DuPont Road, Greenville
Bedrooms, Baths: 7 bedrooms, 3.5 baths
Square Footage: 3,550 Lot Size: 0.68 acres

Constructed in 1928, this home in need of TLC retains many of its original features, including a laundry chute, slate roof and a call system for servants. A suite with a bedroom, sitting room and bath, originally the maid’s quarters, is located above the three-car garage. The charm and good bones on this 1920s Tudor makes it a worthwhile investment. Throughout the home are reminders of the elegance and grandeur of the 1920s.
