Nice house. Yeah, draperies are awful, as are the bathrooms. Not fond of the kitchen either, but would probably chance just about every kitchen and bathroom on 90% of these listings anyway. I would think the window treatments go with the homeowner, so no big deal. They had a couple of nice antique pieces.

Agreed with all of the above.

Who thought of the name "Soddy Daisy" for a town?

from wikipedia:

Soddy-Daisy is an incorporated city, comprising the Tennessee cities Soddy and Daisy.

There are two popular stories about how the city of Soddy got its name. The first is that the word "Soddy" is an anglicization of Tsati, a shorter form of the Cherokee word ᎠᏂ ᎫᏌᏘ Ᏹ (Ani-Kusati-yi), referring to the Muskogean Koasati people who lived there in the 18th century prior to Cherokee migration to the area after 1776. The second theory is that Soddy was named for William Sodder, who ran a trading post in the city. Others claim that Soddy's name is a reference to Soddy Creek, which is believed to have originated from the Cherokee word Sauta, which is derived from Echota. Soddy was a very small town until the Soddy Coal Company began mining in 1867.

Daisy is rumored to have taken its name from Daisy Parks, the daughter of Thomas Parks.[11] Thomas Parks was Vice-President of the Tabler-Cleudup Coal & Coke Company, and founded the Daisy Coal Company in April 1881.[12]

The two cities incorporated in April 1969 along a 9-mile (14 km) stretch of U.S. 27.[13]
