Original Owens Farm House, Circa 1922 in South Carolina. Love the old trees! $140,000

April 6, 2021

This is a cute home! The house was originally part of the Owens Farm, which was comprised of 12 acres. The home was built in 1922. It is located on .45 acres in the waterfront town of Georgetown, South Carolina. Love the old trees on the property! The story is that back in the day there were so many live oak trees on the property that children would climb from one tree to the next. The home features hardwood floors, built-ins and baseboards. There is a large backyard with a detached building for storage. Three bedrooms, one bathroom, and 1,412 square feet. $140,000

From the Zillow listing:


2218 Old Charleston Rd. in historic Georgetown, South Carolina! This quaint home is the original farm house that was once part of a twelve acre tract known as “Owens Farm”. Built in 1922 with hand hewn timber and surrounded by amazing live oak trees. Rumor has it that “back in the day” there were so many oaks the children could climb from one tree to the next without touching the ground! There was also once a mercantile on the corner that was possibly the last stop on the way to Charleston – interesting to know little bits of history! The home has three bedrooms with the owner’s suite being down stairs and one bathroom that has been recently renovated. The cozy great room has hardwood floors and an old fireplace, and there is a country kitchen with new stainless appliances and a formal dining room area. Cute front porch, just under half acre lot and partially fenced yard with azaleas, camelias, and wisteria. Detached workshop with an adjacent music studio/rec room and plenty of room for expanding the home if needed. Priced to sell “as is” and waiting on a little restoration/TLC and maybe even a tin roof – just sayin’. Close to historic downtown Georgetown and the Harbor Walk shops and wonderful restaurants, easy access to salt or fresh water boat launches where you can go out and enjoy any number of boating and fishing opportunities. *Buyer is responsible for verifying square footage.
