Left by previous owners of my house.

Green ovular leaves, red vines.

Originally on a stand, seems to prefer hanging, vines have gotten as long as 3'

Rather long light green seed pods with small black spots sparsely dotting length

Hi Jmfrenet, Welcome!
I'm not certain but I think your lovely plant may be a variety of Peperomia:

Beautiful plant; you are lucky to have it. You can make more plants by taking cuttings. Just stick them into a pot of soil and they grow like crazy.

I agree, definitely some type of Peperomia. There are maybe 2 or 3 that have red stems when exposed to enough sunshine. Peperomia glabella is one...I'll come back and edit to add when I find the other(s).

Edited to add:

Narrowing it down...hopefully.
P. urocarpa (I think this is the correct one) is a trailing Peperomia, red stems.
