From the Zillow listing:


Take a step back in time through the front door of this spectacular historic plantation home built in the early 19th century. Moved to its current location in Glenn Springs in 1834, “Cedar Grove” is 3750 square feet of history, character, and charm. With heart pine floors and walnut wainscoting, the front foyer begins to tell the story of the main level ~ 10′ ceilings, deep moldings, and original woodwork. The formal living and dining rooms are both oversized with original windows and fireplaces. Along the rear of the house on the main level are the updated galley kitchen and laundry room with Jenn-Aire range, Subzero refrigerator and Bosch dishwasher ~ both of which match the cabinetry and become almost ‘invisible’ parts of the kitchen. A library lined with bookshelves and fireplace, along with a separate breakfast room continue to add to the overall charm of the home ~ with natural heart pine doors and intricately detailed door frames. The master suite ‘wing’ on the main level was added in 2008 and maintains the integrity of the original architecture with the modern additions of closets and private bath with two sinks and large walk-in shower. Upstairs are a large loft area, along with two generously-sized bedrooms ~ both with a fireplace and 9′ ceilings. A small office/craft room/nursery is also located on this floor, as well as a full bath. The ‘magic’ continues with a majestic portico off the rear of the house, built with old fluted columns and original stone steps leading into the beautifully designed, shaded yard with large antique fountain, English boxwoods, flowering shrubs and bushes, and a stately Noble tree which was featured in ‘Noble Trees of Spartanburg.’ Recent conveniences in 2018 to the house are a WHOLE HOUSE GENERAC generator and a three-phase heat pump with natural gas furnace for complete comfort year-round. This majestic house is the perfect blend of history and modern day living!
