From the Zillow listing:


Cedar Tree Plantation. This one and one-half story 2,900 square foot home, known as Cedar Tree Plantation, was built in 1853 by Edward G. Palmer and is set in a very private and secluded area of Ridgeway, SC. The property consists of the main house, an 800 square foot two bedroom cottage, a large barn and various outbuildings all set in 17+ acres of mature trees, fenced pasture, meadows and many ornamental bushes and shrubs. This central entrance Colonial, with its striking front porch flanked by large columns, contains a first floor master suite with a full bath and sitting room, formal living and dining rooms, library and kitchen. The first floor is completed by a spacious enclosed back porch that runs the full length of the building and provides the common access to the grounds and outbuildings. The second floor provides two additional bedrooms, a full bath and extensive attic storage. The owner had begun extensive repairs, many of which were completed but a fair amount of finishing and redecorating work remains for the new owners to complete in accord with their personal taste. The cottage and several of the outbuildings need repair but could be restored for active use. This property is very well-priced for this location and the potential it offers! Located just six minutes from I-77, this location is an easy drive to Blythewood, Columbia, SC or Charlotte, NC.
