What a unique opportunity to own a piece of Anderson County History! This southern plantation home dates back to the 1800’s and is rich with character and history. From the moment you step on the stately porch lined with Victorian style columns, or into the grand foyer with marble floors and lavish chandeliers you are guaranteed to fall in love with the classic design exclusive to older homes, constructed with materials that can not be duplicated! The floor plan consist of a formal dining room, living room, dressing room, breakfast room, gourmet kitchen and master suite all on the main level. The grand staircase leads upstairs to an open loft area, three bedrooms and two full baths. You can feel the history in each room, with features that include high ceilings with bead board trim, real wood flooring, intricate molding, and a fireplace in most rooms; including the kitchen! The sun porch that leads to the pool keeps true to times past with Charleston cobblestone brick flooring and an interior brick water fountain. The full basement could easily be finished for even more living space or leave it as it is and expand your storage/workshop space. Outside the three car detached garage includes a full living area above, that is already wired and partially plumbed. With minimum work this would be a fabulous guest quarters. Perched high on top of a generous 8.5 acre estate with a creek along one side of the property, a fenced pasture area that can accommodate several farm animals, and a metal building once used to house the homestead workers, that could be a beautifully restored barn. Don’t miss your chance to fulfill your dream of turning this potential-rich home into a showplace like seen on the cover of Southern Living Magazine!
