I want this house!!!

Now you know I love mid-century modern architecture, but this may just be my favorite house ever. Seriously. AND it's in a small town in Georgia at the foot of a mountain, only 30 minutes from where I live now. I know what you're thinking: "cute cottage, nice yard, but what's so special about this house?"
My jaw dropped when I saw the interior pics. Just look at those original (refinished) tongue and groove walls and ceilings. I love how the walls have vertical wainscotting painted white. And those plantation shutters, that arch between the two rooms, the original mantel, tons of windows, pretty wood floors, oh my...
Although the house only has 1,088 square feet, the rooms seem large and airy. Just look how bright the rooms are, even with all of that wood.
Although, those ceilings fans would have to go (such a minor issue). I'm curious what the kitchen looks like, as there weren't any pics of it on the MLS listing. No matter really, I'd cook on a hotplate and do dishes in a tub if it meant living here.
The house sits on a nice large lot, and although it hasn't really been landscaped, it's already quite pretty.
Can you imagine this cutie surrounded by a cottage garden?
And it's only $80,500. Yes, that's right. Won't one of you buy it, please? I can't bear the thought of it going to a stranger. MLS info here.
