From the Zillow listing:


Aeolian Hill Farm (established in 1872) sits on 210+ acres and is the site of great historical and agricultural significance. Currently, the property is a residence, successful wedding venue and luxury vacation and hunting retreat, and profitable farmland. The land has been used by Clemson University since 1872 for experimental cotton production (currently leased), and Aeolian Hill Farm is the site of the first harvestable soybean developed by John E. Wannamaker II. The view from the front porch is breathtaking, surrounded by wildlife, farmland, and beautiful trees including countless southern live oaks, fruit trees, and towering magnolias.


The residence is an impressive 5,200 square and the entrance and parlors to the left and right are unlike anything constructed today. The layout is perfect for a full-time residence, entertaining, short and long-term guest with separate caretaker quarters, potential bed and breakfast and more. The layout features five bedrooms and four full baths all privately situated throughout the estate. The character, charm, and detailed craftsmanship is incredible – custom molding, stone and iron work, and stained glass. Aeolian Hill Farm is in Calhoun, 1.8 miles from downtown St. Matthews, convenient to downtown Columbia (39 miles), and the East Coast (89 miles). Additional pictures available upon request.
