L.G. Hines House c. 1919

This 2-story weatherboarded bungalow was built in 1919 by L.G. Hines, a Southern Railway yard conductor, and occupied by Hines into the 1940s.

Elevated high above Main Street by a stone retaining wall and an impressive staircase, it has a deceivingly small exterior appearance, yet provides nearly 2500 sf of living space, 5 bedrooms, and 2 baths! Features include a steep gable end roof with large roof dormer and exposed rafter ends. A veranda with heavy tapered piers is representative of the district’s expansive bungalows.

Original beveled-glass front door and sidelights lead to a center hallway and dual front parlors, both with original French doors and all with original wood flooring. Between the large formal dining room and the kitchen is a wonderful butler’s pantry that is original to the home and features built-in cabinetry. Three fireplaces retain their original tile or brick surround, two with original mantels. The downstairs bath features original blue and white honeycomb tile, original early 1900s sink and clawfoot tub. Remarkably, most of the woodwork trim has been unpainted, and all windows are original wood and wavy glass. The upstairs bath, tucked under the eaves, is a modern addition.
