In building this house, work crews conceivably drove up in their Chevys, Fords, Pontiacs and Dodges to the sounds of Elvis and James Brown on the radio.

The residence, at 1635 Timothy St., dates back 55 years or so to the early days of rock ’n roll.

“This home is a classic fifties style one story ranch,” says Robert Shahid, of Shahid Realty in Charleston. He’s prepared to lease the property, situated between Savannah Highway and the Stono River, for $1,395 a month.

The ample brick home, built on a crawl space, encompasses 2,000 square feet while showcasing three bedrooms and two full baths. The interior design touts a living room-dining room combination, a family room with its own fireplace and a large recreation room. A small “galley” kitchen incorporates a counter top range, built-in dishwasher, refrigerator and wall oven.

Hardwood floors in the living and dining room, hall and all the bedrooms give the house a distinctive look inside.

Over time, the residence has undergone various improvements and renovations, the real estate agent says. Notably, crews updated the interior two years ago, applying fresh paint throughout the house and refinishing the hardwood floors.

Repairs were made to the hall bathroom, which also was upgraded with new ceramic tile flooring and wainscoting around the tub. The family room, meanwhile, sports a new carpet and a brick fireplace. The home’s large recreation room also received new carpeting.

Another perk with 1635 Timothy St. concerns the lot: The property includes a large fenced-in rear yard.

In summing up, Shahid describes the rental home as “clean and nice.”

The house straddles the Stono Park and Wappoo Shores neighborhoods. Traveling south and west, get on Savannah Highway and proceed about three miles from the Ashley River Bridge. Turn left on Betsy Street just past the Mama’s Used Cars store. Follow Betsy Street for four blocks. Make a right on Timothy Street. Ahead is 1635 Timothy St.
